Companion to Lefty O'Doul, Betty rubbed elbows with Casey Stangle, Duke Snyder, Willie Mays and many other baseball greats of a bygone era.
Betty's son Anthony, as well as Mary's son Jordan were gradually diagnosed with severe mental illness conditions. The two moms embarked on a quest to "increase public awareness of brain chemistry disorder". Hence this book, a perspective from the point of view of mothers anguishing for years, trying to find the cause of the rapid deterioration in the health of their children.
An article highlighting sports greats from the City of Alameda, appeared in the summer of 2010 on the web site [...] Betty Romero's accomplishment was mentioned.
The SF Giants instead of lapsing into their chronic June-swoon, stayed awake in contention for the remainder of the season. A little help from sports fans in Alameda, a small island town in the SF Bay Area connected to the East Bay through the Posey Tube obviously helped. A rare case of Poetry breathing life into the spirit of a local baseball team competing in a national sport, finally triumphant 63 years after moving to Bagdad by the Bay.
The anthology contains works by Alameda Island Poets authors. If only one person in the SF Giants organization would check this book out, the 2011 Giants baseball season could have a chance to make it to the top of the National League two years in a row.
If Horace Stoneham could see us now, he would be glad.
