PublishAmerica Presents Orioles Rise from the Ashes by Frank Lynch

Frederick, MD, March 30, 2007 --( PublishAmerica is proud to present Orioles Rise from the Ashes: Baltimore's Journey to the Majors by Frank Lynch of Bel Air, Maryland. Frank Lynch saw his first professional baseball game as a seven-year-old in 1946, and what a game it was. The hometown club, the Baltimore Orioles, was hosting the Montreal Royals and the team’s exciting rookie, Jackie Robinson.

The fact that Robinson was breaking baseball’s color barrier had little impact on the youngster. Although he was fascinated with Robinson’s aggressive style and blazing speed, Frank was more interested in the players wearing the Oriole uniforms. He quickly matched uniform numbers and names - those of Eddie Robinson, Al Cihocki, Howie Moss and Johnny Podgajny. He was hooked.

Throughout his youth and into adulthood he was first and foremost a baseball fan. For 30 years, he worked as a sports writer and copy editor at both of Baltimore’s major newspapers - the News American and the Baltimore Sun. After retiring in 2001, Frank decided to chronicle the final ten years of Baltimore’s membership in the International League.

Orioles Rise from the Ashes is a fact-filled account of events both on and off the field that eventually led to Baltimore’s journey to the majors.

Frank Lynch was born in Baltimore and currently lives in Bel Air, Maryland. Since his retirement in 2001, he has worked as a freelance writer.
