Author Info

Staton Rabin is a writer and freelance sports photographer who has been photographing the New York Yankees' top prospects at the double-A Trenton Thunder since 2013. These remarkable young baseball players (including 2017 American League Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Luis Severino, etc.) now form the core of the Yankees and other MLB teams. DERBY! My Bodacious Life in Baseball is a rare, inside-the-dugout peek at these great young athletes when they were on the cusp of MLB stardom-- narrated by the team's famous Bat Dog, Derby, a golden retriever who views himself as the rookie baseball players' chief coach, mentor, best friend, team psychologist, and perennial All-Star. With over 300 full-color photos and 200-plus pages, this warm and witty lavish paperback gift book is perfect for tweens who love baseball (especially the Yankees) and dogs--  if they can just tear it away from YOU long enough to read it!  Ms. Rabin has also written many other successful books for young people, including the award-winning BETSY AND THE EMPEROR (Simon & Schuster), and MR. LINCOLN'S BOYS (Viking). Her sports photos are published by TIME magazine, "The Wall Street Journal", ESPN.com, the "New York Daily News", "Newsday", CNN.com, and "USA Today Sports Weekly", and are distributed by ZUMA Press Wire Service and, through ZUMA, AP Images.
