Former New York Yankees Pitcher, Bob Tewksbury, will sign his new book: Ninety Percent Mental at Bookends in Ridgewood

ob Tewksbury, will sign his new book: Ninety Percent Mental

March 3,2018

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Former New York Yankees Pitcher, Bob Tewksbury, will sign his new book: Ninety Percent Mental , at Bookends in Ridgewood Monday, April 9 at 7 PM – 8 PM
Books available: March 20th at Bookends in Ridgewood .

Tewksbury was drafted by them out of Saint Leo University in the 19th round of the 1981 Major League Baseball draft. He played for the Yankees for two years, before being sent to the Chicago Cubs. As a free agent in 1988, he signed with the St. Louis Cardinals, where he would stay until 1994. Again a free agent, he went to the Texas Rangers for a year. In 1996, he signed with the San Diego Padres for one more year. In December 1996, he signed with the Minnesota Twins and played for two years with the team,[3] but shoulder problems effectively ended his baseball career after that.

Due to the shoulder and arm problems he faced over the course of his playing career, Tewksbury became known as an excellent control pitcher. His best year was 1992, in which he went 16-5 on the season and had a 2.16 ERA in 233 innings pitched. He appeared in the All-Star game[5] and was third in the Cy Young Award voting that year.[6] His injury problems marred his success from that point forward, with his best post-Cardinals year being in San Diego, where he helped the Padres capture the NL West division title.

In 1992 Tewksbury walked only 20 batters in 233 innings, the best ratio in the major leagues in over half a century. The next season Tewksbury came very close to ending the season with more wins than bases on balls allowed, an elusive feat only accomplished 4 times by 3 different starting pitchers in MLB history. He had 17 wins with only 18 walks allowed late in the season but gave up a walk apiece in his last two starts and did not achieve a win in either game, ending the season with 17 wins on 20 walks.

In 1997, the ever-crafty Tewksbury threw an Eephus pitch, joining an elite few who have thrown the “junkiest pitch in baseball.” He threw it to power-hitter Mark McGwire in an interleague play game at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome and McGwire grounded out on the pitch – twice.Tewksbury’s son has been quoted as calling this pitch “The Dominator.”

During and after his baseball career, he became well known for his philanthropy. He has done a lot of work for the Boys and Girls Club of America,[10] as well as hospital visits for sick children.

Fox News Eric Bolling will be Signing his New Book at Bookends in Ridgewood

Wake Up America_Book Jacket

June 28,2016

the bstaff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, The book signing for Wake Up America by Eric Bolling will take place at Bookends Bookstore (211 East Ridgewood Ave, Ridgewood, NJ  07450) onWednesday, June 29, 2016 at 7:30PM EST.

The event is on Bookends’ homepage.  If readers are unable to attend, they have the option to purchase a signed copy: https://www.book-ends.com/

If a summary is able to be included on the event listing, it is below:

Rising Fox News Channel star Eric Bolling knows first-hand what makes America great. Brought up in a struggling blue-collar family in Chicago, his parents showed him that hard work and firm values can get you far in life. Those values drove him to become a national success as a Fox News Channel personality and co-host of the highly rated show The Five. As Bolling posits in his new book WAKE UP AMERICA: The Nine Virtues that Made Our Nation Great – and Why We Need Them More Than Ever, those strong values, virtues he once saw in America, are now under a tremendous attack by leftist politicians, cultural elites, media, and self-proclaimed educators who have forgotten what made our country strong.  Bolling delivers much-needed celebration of our nation’s founding values, urging U.S. citizens to preserve and protect our country’s present and future.
