Tonight’s guest is legendary author Tony Castro. Tony is an award-winning columnist and political writer who has written for the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Dallas Morning News, and the Political Observer.
Since the mid-1970s Tony Castro has written several books that cover an amazingly wide variety of topics: from the emergence of Mexican-Americans in America culture to a bio of Ernest Hemingway; to splendid dual accounts of baseball legends Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle, Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth.
Twice he has written biographies of Mickey Mantle that have received enormous critical acclaim and praise from baseball experts nationwide.
We are two days away from Opening Day for baseball and 2021 marks the 70th anniversary of Joe DiMaggio’s final season and Mickey Mantle’s first season as major league baseball players. Five years ago Tony Castro wrote a dual account of DiMaggio and Mantle titled “DiMag & Mick: sibling rivals, Yankee Blood brothers”.
