My Baseball Holiday Gifts: Ethan Semendinger

New gear for a new season is always needed!

This year, Santa brought a whole bunch of baseball-related items for me. As I still play baseball in a competitive league- and I am known for breaking my fair share of bats in practice- I got two Rawlings 33” bats. These also came with bat and grip tape so hopefully keep them stronger as we found worked very well last season.

I also got a few nice Yankee golf balls to use, a new Yankees mug, 2021 calendar, a book I’m interested in reading about some old-time greats, and some more cards for my ever-growing collection of the 1959 Topps set!

Thanks Santa!

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."
