Back in simpler times, when people could come in and out of a school, and teachers who are parents and grandparents often brought their children or grandchildren into the building, many would stop by my office to say hello. I would often give those children a lollypop or a pretzel rod. Sometimes two. Or three. Sometimes a whole handful (of lollypops, at least).
In regard to the pretzel rods, there were two little children who visited me who thought these were the most delicious snacks they ever had. They loved those pretzel rods.
The following is the latest press release from my publisher, Artemesia Publishing:
“(The Least Among Them) is the ultimate insider book.” – Marty Appel
“This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond.” – Jonathan Eig
The Least Among Them is a most special baseball book that looks at the New York Yankees history in an original, unique, and never before written manner. Throughout their history, the New York Yankees have been defined by the legends and the successes of their most famous players. But, as part of their long history, the Yankees have also fielded players that have become lost to history. This book is those players’ story, telling the unique histories of the men whose entire major league baseball career lasted but a single game with that game being played as a New York Yankee. While these players may be forgotten, their stories are compelling. Filled with a unique Yankee history, single game stats, and a love of baseball, The Least Among Them tells the story of baseball’s most successful franchise in an entirely new way.
The following are some of the early reviews of this very special book:
