Books by Denny Dressman

“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.
