During my playing days I wrote down many stories and over the years I told them to friends and strangers alike. They all said you have to write a book so others can hear about your personal experiences. Just a Phone Call Away is more than a good baseball story. It is about a major journey through the mir leagues experiencing hardships, laughter and hope. it takes you behind the scenes to some unique situations and allows you to experience some of the craziest tales you have ever heard. It is Forrest Gump in real life and there is a message of hope throughout the book. No one would believe someone with such a mediocre major league career could have experienced so much with so many famous people and enjoyed so many laughs.
