Longtime sportscaster Bill Werndl Releases His Autobiography “No Curveballs: My Greatest Sports Stories Never Told”
(PHILADELPHIA) October 5, 2016: Longtime sportscaster Bill Werndl, who has amassed a career in sports spanning 50 years, has released his autobiography “No Curveballs: My Greatest Sports Stories Never Told,” which is available now on Amazon.com.
From his humble upbringing in Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania, to becoming the first full-time sports producer in Philadelphia news, to his ascension as one of San Diego’s most popular sports talk radio hosts, Bill shares some of his most memorable and previously untold stories from a remarkable journey that was half a century in the making.
Bill’s very first book covers it all: From his summers spent in Akron, Ohio as a youngster, when he answered sports trivia questions for root beer, to his very first professional interview with NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain, his time spent with the 1970s Philadelphia Flyers (aka the Broad Street Bullies), his work with Ourlad’s Guide to the NFL Draft, an infamous encounter with broadcaster Howard Cosell, his impressions of a young M.C. Hammer, a run in with an angry Dan Dierdorf, his friendships with baseball greats Ted Williams, Tony Gwynn, Mike Piazza and Dick Allen, how he gave Major League Baseball Hall of Famer and Philadelphia Phillies great Mike Schmidt his first break in television, as well as the day he got body slammed by Eagles Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik.
No Curveballs also features insights from the late, iconic Philadelphia Daily News sportswriter, Stan Hochman, Bill’s fellow Loose Cannon radio co-host, Steve Hartman, and more!
Writer Joe Vallee (A Snowball’s Chance: Philly Fires Back Against the National Media) was assigned the task of putting into words the no-holds-barred look at the life and times of one of the most diverse and accomplished personalities in the world of sports. Vallee, a former Philadelphia Phillies bat boy and one of the founders of the website Philly2Philly.com, is considered an authority on the history and inner workings of Philadelphia’s often-maligned but beloved sports teams.
No Curveballs: My Greatest Sports Stories Never Told is a biographical, controversial, informative and always entertaining read. Bill wouldn’t have it any other way.
