I truly believe we can all be almost anything we want to be. I think it just takes hard work, perseverance, some creativity, and, maybe, a little luck. Sometimes, I think, we also have to modify our dreams a little. Last week, I got to live out, in a sense, one of my childhood dreams.
My in-depth review of the book Dinner With DiMaggio by Dr. Rock Positano is now published on the New York Yankees blog, “It’s About The Money.”

The great Joe Posnanski recently wrote a blog post one of the first great book he ever read, The Kid Who Only Hit Homers. I often relate to a lot of what Mr. Posnanski writes about, but this was other worldly… that was also the first great book I ever read.

NOTE – The following passage comes from a draft of my book The Least Among Them which presents an original and unique history of the New York Yankees. The Least Among Them is currently in the research and editing stages. It is hoped that the final research for this text will be completed in 2017. I have targeted a 2018 publication date.
John Francis “Honey” Barnes began his professional baseball career after graduating from Colgate University in 1925. During his last two season at Colgate, Barnes displayed outstanding batting skills hitting .385 as a junior in 1924 and .350 as a senior in 1925. Barnes was usually the #4 batter in the Colgate lineup as well as serving as the team’s captain. After college, Barnes was signed by baseball scout Paul Krichell who certainly left his mark on Yankees history.
