The Spencer Kieboom Story (from The Washington Post)

This story, from The Washington Post (November 30, 2020) has captured the imagination of many. It is a unique story that has people talking about Spencer Kieboom, his career, striving to be the best, and baseball as a whole.

We bring you this introduction and the link to the full story from Jesse Dougherty:

“It wasn’t the crowd that sticks with Spencer Kieboom. It wasn’t the game that unfolded no more than 50 feet from where he sat in the home dugout. It wasn’t the weather or the noise.

It was the lights between the third base line and left field foul pole at Nationals Park. It was the way they bathed the field, the stands and made him squint. Kieboom played 53 times under big league lights and is one of only 19,902 people ever to do so. But that night — Aug. 28, 2019 — was his last in the majors.”

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."

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."
