Wish I could make it, but Zipcar is prohibitively expensive for the two-hour drive there and back. Maybe in April you can do another event closer to a PATH or NJ Transit stop? :-)

A terrific player, vastly overlooked, but significantly responsible, for much of the late 70's Yankees success. Guru Bill James, rate him as a better player, than Jim Rice.

I would love to see a plaque at Yankee Stadium in Roy Whites honor. He played on terrible Yankee trams and was their best player. Finally the Yankees were great once more and White morphed was essential. I met him a few times as a sportswriter for an upstate newspaper. Roy , Mickey Mantle , and Bret Gardner were my favorite Yankees .

Thank you! I agree, it is more than time to get Roy White in Monument Park.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
