Meet the Author

Gary Caruso is a graduate of Marietta College and is a product of its baseball program, where he lettered twice as a student assistant coach under the legendary Don Schaly. He also is the co-author of Behind the Plate, the autobiography of former Atlanta Braves catcher Javy Lopez, released by Triumph Books in spring 2012.
Caruso is the best-known and most accomplished of modern Atlanta Braves historians. A career sports journalist, he is the author of The Braves Encyclopedia and Turner Field: Rarest of Diamonds. Editor of numerous Braves publications for the last twenty years, he has the unique distinction of delivering the eulogies for two of the greatest pitchers in history-Warren Spahn and Lou Burdette. He also conceived and raised the funds for the Warren Spahn Statue that stands in front of Turner Field in Atlanta, and he designed and scripted the popular Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium Mural at the Braves' home ballpark.

Caruso lives in suburban San Diego with his wife, Lane, and their Boston terrier, Pumpkin.

    Great representation of the program and the men behind it!

    As an ex-player in the Marietta College program, I found that the book was very true to the men that have driven the program for almost 50 years. My only wish was that my father was still alive to read it, as he would have really enjoyed it. For most of us, Coaches Schaly and Brewer were father figures and role models. Well done.
