(HAWTHORNE, NJ) -- On Wednesday, July 20th at 6:30pm, Passaic County presents an author lecture with Paul Semendinger. It's the day after the All-Star Game, and the slowest day on the sports calendar. Keep those All-Star vibes going and join Paul as he discusses his book, The Least Among Them at Passaic County Arts Center at the John W. Rea House in Hawthorne. Admission is free.
The Least Among Them 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.
