Synopsis: Spurred by his passion for sports and a deep love for his Italian heritage, Nick Manzello began writing Legacy of the Gladiators more than twenty years ago.
His pieces on great Italian-American sports figures come from a variety of sources. Many are based on interviews with these famous men and women, as well as his personal knowledge of their careers.
Legacy of the Gladiators demonstrates the remarkable impact on sports made by Italian Americans. It contains 49 stories of great Italian-American sports figures — from Joe DiMaggio to Mary Lou Retton. A great read, a great gift.
About the Author: Nick Manzello has had a distinguished career as a sportswriter and as a television and radio host. He is also chairman of the Massachusetts Boxing Commission, a member of the advisory board or directors of the Norwich Navigators, a New York Yankee farm team, and a former voting member of the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
Nick has received many honors, including 52 media awards. He may be the only sportswriter with a baseball field, cigar, a 20-ounce pork chop, and a breakfast special named after him.
