I was recently interviewed on Start Spreading the News as I shared information about my new book The Least Among Them.

My new book on the history of the Yankees titled The Least Among Them is getting some great early reviews.
This book is available for pre-order now and will be released in early October 2021.
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:Continue reading “Positive Previews for “The Least Among Them””

On Thursday night, SSTN writer Michael Saffer and I attended a live taping of Yankees Hot Stove at the Yogi Berra Museum in Montclair, New Jersey. It was a great event.
The theater/studio at the Yogi Berra is a great venue. It’s small and intimate. A person in the audience gets the sense that the presenters (in this case the Yankees Hot Stove Team) are actually talking with you – and at times they were.
Located in that studio is a replica Yankee Stadium scoreboard. (See the picture above.) Each time I attend an event at the Yogi Berra Museum, I wonder what game that scoreboard is supposed to reflect. As such, I decided that I would figure it out using the wonderful tools at BaseballReference.com, my Yankees knowledge, and some common sense.
