Bill Pemstein

Bill Pemstein was a Washington Senators fan growing up in Falls Church, VA. And then his older brother told him about an improving club in Baltimore. December 9 is almost a religious day in his life. It's the day in 1965 that Frank Robinson was traded to Baltimore. The next year was a World Series championship and the rest is history. Pemstein worked in the Washington office of the Orioles from 1983-1987. That was before a 22-year career in sportswriting in Midwest. He is the author of "A Stone's Throw" that details the 1980 season of Cy Young Award winner Steve Stone.
