About the Author

K. Adam Powell is a reporter for the ACC Sports Journal, the website, and the Mebane Enterprise newspaper. He previously worked for the network, and has covered Final Fours, college bowl games, and numerous NBA and NFL players. Powell is the author of three books, including Border Wars: The First 50 Years of Atlantic Coast Conference Football (Scarecrow, 2004).


A very important aspect of this book, shows the reader all of the details leading up to Lymans final moments. The readers get all the details of the who, what, when, why and where of that fateful night. It filled in a lot of the blanks in the story for me and put to rest any doubts of what a stand up guy Lyman Bostock really was from beginning until the end. Powell did a great job of sharing Bostock's story which I feel has been a very overlooked or forgotten subject. His time in both life and baseball were very short, but his impact was much greater beyond his years. Check this book out, I don't think anyone who puts the effort into reading this will regret it. * Gregg's Baseball Bookcase *
