MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. - Bruce Fabricant grew up in the Golden Age of baseball, a time after World War II when Little League baseball grew the game in America.

Fabricant provides a nostalgic look back at "the importance of team baseball in childhood development" through his memories of 1950s baseball in his latest book, "Baseball Boys, Rediscovering 1950s Little League Baseball in Mount Vernon, NY"

Born and raised in Mount Vernon, a resident of Ardsley for many years and now a resident of Somers, Fabricant runs his own public relations firm and has written four made-for-television sports films and four books including, "That Perfect Spring".

"Baseball was exciting and fun," said Fabricant. "Little League gave each of us so much, independence and camaraderie. It was a game that filled our late summer days. Go to school, play ball, and stay out of trouble was our job."

Fabricant gives a detailed, year-by-year account filled with photos of the Mount Vernon Little league's first decade, 1950-1959. Mount Vernon produced major leaguers Andy Karl, Ralph Branca and Ken Singleton. In "Baseball Boys", 25 men now in their late 60s and 70s, alumni from the ’50s, reminisce about their Little League lives.

"Baseball Boys, Rediscovering 1950s Little League Baseball in Mount Vernon, NY" is available on
