This book is now available for pre-order.
Special Preview: From Compton to the Bronx
I am thrilled to share this excerpt from my collaboration with Roy White on his autobiography,
From Compton to the Bronx.
This book will be released in April 2023, but is now available for pre-order.
Initial reviews for this book have been tremendously positive. Here is one:
“Roy White is as dignified a Yankee as there has ever been, one of the many reasons a generation of fans (myself included) grew up imitating his stance.
Paul Semendinger does a masterful job capturing the essence of the great left fielder. This is a must-read about the most underrated Yankee of all time.”

The New Books Network Podcast Featuring “The Least Among Them”
I was recently interviewed on the New Books Network Podcast to discuss The Least Among Them.
You can listen to this interview below.
From the site:
The Least Among Them: 29 Players, Their Brief Moments in the Big Leagues, and a Unique History of the New York Yankees (Artemesia, 2021) 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.
