Ted Green, one of hockey's roughest and best players, suffered a depressed, compound skull fracture when he was hit over the head by Wayne Maki of St. Louis during an exhibition game in September 1969. Paralyzed on the left side, his speech badly affected, he underwent three delicate brain operations performed by a brilliant Ottawa neurosurgeon. Green, it appeared, would be lucky to ever lead a normal life again. Yet with the help of good therapy, Ted's own determination, his wife Pat's cooperation, and hard tedious work, he was back skating on Boston ice fourteen months later — and soon playing as well as ever before.

HIGH STICK is the story of this extraordinary comeback.

Ted Green, who is thirty-one, has been a mainstay of the Boston Bruin hockey team for ten years.

Al Hirshberg is the author of many books on sport. Perhaps his two best known are FEAR STRIKES OUT with Jim Piersall and YAZ with Carl Yastrzemski.
