Cascade Publishing House is excited to announce that Harold Michael Harvey’s new book The Duke of 18th & Vine: Bob Kendrick Pitches Negro League Baseball is available for pre-orders. We are excited because Michael, a certified baseball fanatic, finally has written a book about his beloved baseball.

This book centers around an interview given by Kendrick in Atlanta, Georgia, during a centennial celebration of the Negro Leagues, which was hosted by the Atlanta Braves.

Michael attended the celebration as a special guest of the Atlanta Braves. It didn’t take him long to figure out that the pearls of wisdom dropped by Kendrick were worth memorializing in a book format.

So he took out his reporter’s pad and began to take notes. To give context to the interview, Michael wrote the foreword and provided editorial content where needed to flush out the rich stories Kendrick shared with his Atlanta audience.

What followed was The Duke of 18th & Vine: Bob Kendrick Pitches Negro League Baseball. The book is 115 pages and contains photographs from the centennial celebration in Atlanta, held on February 11, 2020. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book goes to support the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum on the corner of 18th & Vine, Kansas City, Missouri.

“I’m tickled pink to get this project done,” Harvey said, adding, “I’ve always wanted to write a baseball book, and something about listening to Bob Kendrick share the stories of the Negro Leagues, told me the time was right to give a baseball book a try. I hope it meets with favor among other baseball fanatics.”

The Duke of 18th & Vine: Bob Kendrick Pitches Negro League Baseball is available for $25.00. The shipping is free. Place your orders at haroldmimchaelharvey.com and Harold-Michael-Harvey.square.site
