Really Great Book About A Baseball Player

If I were a Rothian or Bellovian or Fordian American writer - like the contemporary version - I would write a novel about the son of a famous baseball player who grows up to become an even MORE famous baseball player but does a lot of shitty stuff to get there. He breaks his wife's ribs, he takes drugs, he sells out friends, he may even be responsible for a few "gangland" style slayings. His wife bears him only daughters. That novel would be America.
