You can follow Dennis Snelling's projects and see additional material by "liking" his Facebook pages for "Lefty O'Doul: Baseball's Forgotten Ambassador" and "The Greatest Minor League." A baseball fan since age eight, Snelling is proud to have caught a foul ball off the bat of Padres infielder Fernando Gonzalez at San Diego Stadium in 1978. (Interestingly, his college roommate at the time also caught a foul ball off the bat of the same player at Candlestick Park the next year, and they were sitting next to each other both times.) Snelling is a three-time finalist for the Casey Award for Best Baseball Book of the Year--for "The Greatest Minor League" in 2011, "Johnny Evers: A Baseball Life" in 2014, and for "Lefty O'Doul: Baseball's Forgotten Ambassador" in 2017. In addition, "Johnny Evers" was a 2015 Seymour Medal finalist. Snelling was a senior writer for "Helmar Baseball History & Art Magazine" and writes a column for "Minor Trips Digest" and reviews sports books for the New York Journal of Books. He is in his 46th season as public address announcer for Downey High School sports teams, particularly football, in Modesto, California, and works as an Associate Superintendent for a school district in Roseville, California.Read more Read less
