Tony Hernandez, a former Division 1 baseball player who played one season with the Chicago Cubs and pursued an Emmy and Golden Mike Award-winning broadcasting career spanning thirty-six years before retiring to cultivate the passion for acting in plays and musical theater ignited when he played himself in the movie Rocky III, has completed his new book “Always Turn Down the First Offer: Memoirs of a Sportscaster”: an engaging narrative recalling an eventful career in the American professional sports world and beyond.

“Always Turn Down the First Offer: Memoirs of a Sportscaster” is much more than a diary of one person’s recollections of working on television and radio in markets ranging in size from the smallest, in Los Alamos, New Mexico, to the largest, the Big Apple, New York City. It is a nostalgic journey through a bygone era from the late 1960s to the somewhat more recent early 2000s. It gives insight into a sportscaster’s daily up-close and personal dealings with some of America’s greatest athletes, teams, coaches, and other broadcasters of that period. No punches are pulled in describing the highs and lows and the politics involved in the business of broadcasting. For those who may be interested in entering the profession themselves, there are lessons to be learned here.

Published by Page Publishing, Tony Hernandez’s engrossing book is an excellent read for avid sports fans.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Always Turn Down the First Offer: Memoirs of a Sportscaster” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
