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.

These Guys Went On To Bigger And Better Things

I always tell folks out here in Chicago that there is nothing that matches the arrogance that comes from Washington D.C. In all my years sportswriting in the Midwest, I never found the egos that grew in DC. Of course some of the most exciting people in the world come from the Nation’s Capitol as well.

Of course 1996 stands out in the baseball career of Brady Anderson. How could this leadoff hitter smash an Orioles team record 50 homers in one season?
