Robidoux played for six years in the majors, hitting .209 with five home runs for the Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox between 1985-1990. He never played in more than 56 games in a season and his best year at the plate came that year when he hit .227 with 21 RBIs and 15 runs scored for the Brewers in 1986.
Unfortunately, I could not find any information on the book Robidoux refers to. Roger Kahn wrote a book called The Boys of Summer, but it is about the Brooklyn Dodgers.
