RBHS Board Member and Renowned Author Scott Pitoniak Launches Latest Book “Remembrances of Swings Past: A Lifetime of Baseball Stories.”

Author Pitoniak writes “Thrilled to announce the publication of my latest book, “Remembrances of Swings Past: A Lifetime of Baseball Stories.” You’ll read about legendary players (Derek Jeter, Cal Ripken Jr., Jackie Robinson, Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente, Yogi Berra) and seminal events (walk-off Series homers by Joe Carter & Carlton Fisk, Brooklyn finally winning it all, the Red Wings 33-inning marathon), but also learn about the only woman enshrined in the Hall of Fame, the wackiness of knuckleballers, the blind sportswriter who’s covered the game for 60 years, a pitch that nearly killed, what it’s really like to be a mascot, and the power of baseball to connect generations and heal wounds. The book contains 74 essays and is available in paperback ($15.99) or electronically ($7.99) at the link below. If you love the game, I think you’ll enjoy the book. Plus, you’ll be helping to support a starving writer. 😉
