Donald Honig


Donald Honig is America’s preeminent baseball writer, and perhaps the game’s biggest fan. He fell in love with baseball while growing up in Queens, NY, following his beloved Brooklyn Dodgers. As a teenager he even got a shot at pitching in the minor leagues. Later, he was thrilled to find he could merge his natural talent for writing with his passion for America’s game, and has since gone on to author scores of books on baseball history, in addition to several works of fiction.

His latest work is “The Fifth Season, Tales of My Life in Baseball” an entertaining auto-biography, full of stories about growing up with baseball as a significant part of his life, interviewing baseball legends for his books, and other entertaining tales.

Don lives and writes in Cromwell, Connecticut, near his daughter Cathy and her family.
