About the Author

Gaylon H. White was a sportswriter for the Denver Post, Arizona Republic and Oklahoma Journal before working in the corporate world for nearly forty years. He is the author of The Bilko Athletic Club: The Story of the 1956 Los Angeles Angels (2014) and Singles and Smiles: How Artie Wilson Broke Baseball's Color Barrier (2018), and co-author with Ransom Jackson of Handsome Ransom Jackson: Accidental Big Leaguer (2016), all published by Rowman & Littlefield.


Meticulously researched and compellingly presented, Left on Base in the Bush Leagues is the best book on 1950s minor league baseball ever, a milestone worthy of sharing the same bookshelf with The Glory of Their Times. -- Jim McConnell, former sports columnist for the San Gabriel Valley News Group, two-time recipient of the SABR Research Award, and author of the critically-acclaimed biography Bobo Newsom: Baseball's Traveling Man
Once again Gaylon White brings to life forgotten heroes of baseball as only he can tell. A captivating read. -- Ransom Jackson Jr., two-time Major League Baseball All-Star, Chicago Cubs and Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers
I love the stories in this book. They provide great insight on the life of pro baseball players in the fifties and early sixties. -- Jack McKeon, two-time National League Manager of the Year, Cincinnati Reds and world champion Florida Marlins
Ron Necciai and I are long-time friends. In 1955 at Hollywood in the Pacific Coast League, I played with Carlos Bernier and against Joe Taylor, Joe Brovia, and Bob Dillinger. Left on Base in the Bush Leagues stirs fond memories of those days by taking you back to the fifties. It's a trip worth taking. -- Bill Mazeroski, 10-time National League All-Star second baseman, Pittsburgh Pirates, and National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee, 2001
Exhaustive research always gets my attention. It signals the author demands accuracy. Gaylon White's storytelling and writing are excellent and his attention to detail nails it. -- Bob Wirz, former chief spokesman for two Major League Baseball commissioners and author of the autobiographical The Passion of Baseball
Having played in the minor leagues for eleven years from 1947-1957, I knew many of the players covered in Gaylon White's book personally and could relate with fondness to life in the minors. Reading Left on Base in the Bush Leagues was exciting and brought back many great memories and recollections of awfully good players. -- Ed Mickelson, former St. Louis Cardinal, St. Louis Brown, and Chicago Cub and author of Out of the Park
Baseball fans love a good story about those who once played the game. In his book, Gaylon White has captured this in the short biographies of some of these most colorful and unique individuals. I had the pleasure to play the game with and against these men in my eleven year baseball career. Enjoy! -- Paul Pettit, baseball's first $100,000 bonus baby, Pittsburgh Pirates
