With a raconteur's wit and keen eye for detail, Nelson "Nellie" King spins tales of his journey in professional baseball. From the farm teams of the deep south in the early 1940s, to the pitcher's mound, and then to the Pirates' broadcasting booth in the 1970s, King provides readers with a front row seat to the momentous changes he witnessed in his beloved game. The ball parks, dugouts, and road trips of yesteryear jump to life on these pages, as do the personalities of Pirate legends like Roberto Clemente, Bill Mazeroski, and Willie Stargell. King also has much to say about the business of baseball, from the expansion of franchises to dramatic salary increases. His humor, warmth, and insights will please die-hard Pirates fans as well as baseball history buffs.

About the Author:

Nelson "Nellie" King is the undisputed king of Pirates baseball lore. A natural storyteller, he loves to share colorful tales of historic moments during his days as a pitcher (1954-1957) and later as a radio and television broadcaster (1967-1975) with the "Buccos" along side the inimitable Bob "The Gunner" Prince.
