By Mr. Billy Sample
Billy Sample was fifteen years old in 1970 when he decided that of football, basketball or baseball, it would be the latter sport in which hed concentrate his efforts toward a professional career. He subsequently played three years each of: high school baseball, American Legion ball, college baseball, collegiate summer league ball and minor league baseball that led to playing in nine major league seasons. The Salem, VA native invites you to share in his insights, great memory and unique perspicacity in an anecdotal way. The focus of “A Year in Pinstripes … And Then Some” centers around the New York Yankees 97 win 1985 season. This season is surrounded with many memorable stories from the other years as well. The former outfielder who subsequently became a writer and a broadcaster is sure youll close the book at the finish with a smile on your face.
