Welcome to another edition of Sports Palooza Radio! Thank you for stopping by. Today, we know that the start of spring training is just around the corner and soon it will be baseball season!  We thought it was a great time to talk to Arnie "Tokyo" Rosenthal and his amazing story and book "A Fauxtographer’s Yankee Stadium Memoir."

So just who is Arnie “Tokyo” Rosenthal?  For eight consecutive Major League seasons, this Valley Stream, NY, native (now a resident of Chapel Hill, NC), who envisioned and dreamed of himself as a baseball media broadcaster, beat reporter and photographer, “schemed and tricked” his way into the House That Ruth Built with full access to the Stadium’s field, press box, dugouts, clubhouses and even top level complimentary seats in the stands.  Over that time period, he recorded very few actual player interviews and filed very few stories, but he and his attractive girlfriend/soon-to-be-wife took hundreds of photos of players, managers and coaches that have never been seen by anyone. That is until now.
