“... entertaining and enjoyable” --Terry Frei     READ ENTIRE REVIEW

Game Three
of a Rockies tripleheader
is a winner, too!

"...if he’d said he never pitched,
I wouldn’t have wanted to use him."
--Buddy Bell

"I thought, 'This is so damn easy.
I can't believe it's such a big deal.'"
"Then... Furcal came up."
--Brent Mayne

The game between the Rockies and Braves on August 22, 2000 would have been just game No. 126 of 162 if it hadn’t gone extra innings... if there hadn’t been an on-field brawl... if the Rockies hadn’t run out of pitchers... and if Brent Mayne hadn’t been injured the week before. Thanks to Adam Melhuse, it was historic.

“Another glittering stone in the author’s Rockies crown”
--Spitball Magazine

Coors Field's inaugural
In 1995 was a classic

"The first may be the best forever..."
--Woody Paige

"It was like a full season in one game..."
--Dante Bichette

Go behind the scenes as the Colorado Rockies come to life in LoDo. Experience their early years--the expansion draft, the players strike and winning the first NL Wild Card--highlighted by Dante Bichette's game-winning homer in the 14th inning of the 20th and Blake opener.
“As spellbinding a book as I’ve ever read about a single baseball game, and that includes Frost’s Game Six, Bradley’s The Greatest Game, and Barry’s Bottom of the 33rd. I never wanted Game 163, or Dressman’s re-creation of it, to end.”
-John Erardi, author of
Tony Perez: From Cuba to Cooperstown

“I covered ‘Game 163’ as a rookie Rockies TV reporter in 2007. Thanks to Denny’s work, now I really know the particulars of the game that I covered! A great read for all baseball fans!”
-Marc Stout, AT&T Sportsnet RM
Colorado Rockies TV reporter
Like the epic battle it captures, Game 163 has that something extra. Reliving the excitement of that 13-inning game, author Denny Dressman doesn’t dwell on whether or not Matt Holliday touched the plate. Rather, through interviews and scrupulous research, he stitches together a memorable quilt of events and backstories that kicked off “Rocktober” with a 9-8 Rockies win and launched a run that culminated with the team’s first trip to the World Series.
From the Streets of Brooklyn to Trainer to the Stars As a noted Thoroughbred trainer based in New York, John Parisella saddled at least one winner every year for 48 years, racing at 38 tracks coast to coast. But that’s not what makes From the Streets of Brooklyn to Trainer to the Stars such a compelling read.

Orchids and Butteflies Charlie and Marie

In 2020 Denny Dressman published his first non-commercial book, titled Charlie and Marie, a history of his family. He followed that months later with a similar history of his wife’s family, titled Orchids & Butterflies.

In “Preserving Your Family’s Legacy” he relates the story behind his 82-page “labor of love” and encourages others to write their family histories—before it’s too late. His message is illustrated equally well by Orchids & Butterflies, the companion to Charlie and Marie.
