Our Guest Speaker for October is Jay Johnstone, former Los Angeles Dodger & California Angel Baseball Player.

Raconteur, bon vivant, author, and former major league baseball player JAY JOHNSTONE has gained national prominence as a speaker and television host in recent years.

The colorful and quotable Johnstone enjoyed a 20-year major league career with seven teams-the Angels, White Sox, Athletics, Phillies, Yankees, Dodgers, and Cubs.  During his tenure, the left handed hitting outfielder compiled a lifetime .267 average.

Johnstone appeared in four League Championship Series and two World Series- with the Yankees in 1978 and the Dodgers in ’81.  During the latter October classic, Johnstone connected for a game-winning two-run pinch hit home run, which enabled the Dodgers to defeat the Yankees.

With Philadelphia, Johnstone put together back-to-back seasons of .329 and .318 in 1975-76.  He missed the National League batting title by a mere 12 at bats in the former year.  Johnstone has authored three humorous books detailing his baseball experiences.  His first book, “Temporary Insanity” became a best seller and was the top selling sports book published in 1985.  Two years later, he authored “Over the Edge” while his latest literary entry, “Some of my Best Friends are Crazy” hit the bookstores in 1993.
