This press release was emailed to me the other day and I thought I’d pass it along for anyone interested:

Pittsburgh Pirates fans will have the opportunity to meet pitching legend and current Pirates announcer Steve Blass at a book signing he will conduct at Barnes & Noble at The Stacks at the Waterfront located at 100 West Bridge Street in Homestead on Saturday, June 16 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.  Blass will be signing copies of his new book A Pirate for Life.

About the book:

Exploring a pitching career that began with a complete-game victory over Hall of Famer Don Drysdale in 1964 and ended when he could no longer control his pitches, this book details the life of Pittsburgh Pirates great, Steve Blass. This insider’s view of the humorous and bizarre journey of a World Series champion pitcher turned color commentator will delight Pirates and baseball fans alike. Recounting his first years in the Major Leagues and his battle with the baffling condition that would ultimately bear his own name, Steve Blass tells the story of his life on and off the field with a poignant, dazzling wit and shares the life of a baseball player who had the prime of his career cut short.
