Bill Pemstein's first book, A Stone's Throw, detailed the wondrous 1980 season of Baltimore Orioles pitcher Steve Stone. Pemstein's back with a whimsical collection of vignettes in Tales from Orioles Nation. Sure, there's a lot on Frank, Brooks, Boog and all the Orioles' stars from that era when Baltimore was the model franchise in the Major Leagues. From the three-headed monster of John Lowenstein, Gary Roenicke and Benny Ayala to the speedy Al Bumbry to the 21-game losing streak and the comeback year of 1989, it's all here. Orioles fans rejoice. Even former Pirates bullpen ace Kent Tekulve gets a word in.Cover photo: Camden Yards 1996. (Photo by Jerry Reuss.
