Al Clark was a professional umpire for thirty years, working more than three thousand games, including two All-Star Games, ten playoff series, and two World Series. Former AP sportswriter Dan Schlossberg is the author or coauthor of more than thirty baseball books, including The New Baseball Bible and When the Braves Ruled the Diamond.
"Al Clark never threw me out of a game, but Billy Martin wasn't so fortunate. I not only witnessed his confrontations with Al but enjoyed remembering them in this book." - Ron Blomberg, first designated hitter "Some of the nicest conversations I've had in forty-two years of baseball have been with umpires. I loved any time spent with my friend Al Clark. Enjoy some great baseball stories from a man who once had a front-row seat in our great game." - Chris Wheeler, Phillies broadcaster
