PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Former Phillies Manager Dallas Green is on a tour promoting his new book, “The Mouth That Roared”, in which he looks back on his long, illustrious career in baseball.

In a career spanning six decades, Dallas Green has experienced the game from virtually all angles, from the pitchers mound, to the minor league farm system. From the front office to, most notably, the dugout as manager of the 1980 club that took the city of Philadelphia on a bumpy, unforgettable ride that ended in a confetti filled parade down Broad Street.

“It was just a dogfight day in and day out,” Green said. “We had faced all the adversity we wanted to face and our guys played like the devil.”

The book covers all the controversies he got into in Philly, Chicago and New York.

Green also shares his grief over losing his granddaughter in the 2011 attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Green now supports his son and daughter in their effort to enact stricter gun control laws.
