Meet the Author

Dom Forker's thirty books on baseball have sold more than two million copies. They include The Men of Autumn and Sweet Seasons, works that cover the Yankee glory years of 1949-64, a period during which they won 14 pennants and 9 World Series.

He interviewed 57 former Yankees, including Joe DiMaggio, for the two books. Mel Allen wrote the introduction for The Men of Autumn.

Dom switched his focus from sports to spirituality about ten years ago. Our Lady of Emmitsburg, Roses in December, and Voula; The Power of the Cross are his first three books in the spiritual realm. They are dedicated to the Blessed Mother, to whom he developed a deep spiritual attqachment that blossomed at Mt. St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg, MD.

When asked why he's switched from sports to spirituality, he likes to quip: "'When it gets late in the contest, quite often it's time to change your game plan."

Before he completely changed his "game plan," however, he decided to write one final book on the National Pastime: Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams: Baseball's Greatest Player and Baseball's Greatest Hitter. They have been the two baseball luminaries during his time who have stood the test of time. In 1969, baseball named Joe Baseball's Greatest Living Player and Ted Baseball's Greatest Living Hitter.

In one season (1941) alone, they set marks that have not been seriously threatened in more than seventy years: Joe hit safely in a record 56 consecutive games, and Ted batted. 406.

Dom, who lives in Milford, NJ, sensed that we may never see their equal again, and so he decided that he would reconnect baseball fans of his generation with Joe and Ted and connect followers of the present era with the Clipper and the Kid.

This is his Farewell to Baseball book. It couldn't get any better, he believes, than Joe and Ted.
