Editorial Reviews


"I thoroughly enjoyed reading 'Just Out of Reach' by Greg Prato. A true insight from players of the Yankees during the 80's. This book is a must read." --Phil Niekro, Yankees pitcher 1984-1985, Baseball Hall of Fame Inductee 1997

"'Just Out of Reach' brings back many forgotten memories about the great times we had back then with great friends and teammates. I think 'Just Out of Reach' is a great read that not only Yankee fans but baseball fans will enjoy, also." --Rudy May, Yankees pitcher 1974-1976 & 1980-1983

"The parts of the book I have read I found very enjoyable and interesting. Brings back lots of memories." --Dave "La Lob" LaRoche, Yankees pitcher 1981-1983

"I think 'Just Out of Reach' is a great read for Yankees fans and baseball fans alike. It's also a really nice trip down nostalgia lane for anyone who grew up as a NY sports fan in the 80's." --Demetri Adarahtas, sports radio talk show host (WFAN)

"Whether you are a fan of the New York Yankees or not, this is a fantastic read. As a baseball fan and a Mets fan, I learned so much about the Yankees and a time period in which I grew up in. It's another great job by Greg, and extremely informative about a period of time in Yankee history you do not find a lot of material written about." --John Panarese, SportsTalkNY (WGBB)

"Greg's book signifies the 1980's to a tee. The compilation of interviews describes an ego-filled, frustrating time for Yankee fans that turned in the 90's, but unfortunately, didn't get our hero Don Mattingly a title in the 1980's." --Mike Lindsley,

"An absorbing recollection of now-it-can-be-told, behind-the-scenes flashbacks organized loosely by years and individual personalities. More than 25 observers, ranging from Hall of Famer [Goose] Gossage to role players such as Barry Foote and Brian Fisher, as well as a broadcaster, newspaper reporter, sports memorabilia store owner and a stand-up comedian who's a Yankees fan share their stories of an era that has been largely overlooked. Until now." --Paul Hagen,

"Prato trains his literary focus on the 1980s-era New York Yankees and the decade that almost was. The author is a master at seeking out little wrinkles in the great and exalted fabric of professional sports. Using the oral narrative, he stitches, sews and stretches the cloth until he's created an historic blanket without a single loose thread." --Steven Rosen,

"There is a clear nostalgia sweet spot for the book, namely Yankees fans younger than me who don't clearly recall the teams of the mid-to-late 1970s and those old enough to know Yankees history did not begin in 1996. Prato has assembled an impressive array of players from the era, many of whom don't mind being honest about those times now that enough years have gone by." -Neil Best, Newsday
