GRAYSLAKE – Bill Pemstein, a longtime Lake County sportswriter, has released a new book, "Tales From Orioles Nation," a collection of vignettes.

For the past 25 years, Pemstein has covered events and personalities in Lake County. Now, he writes for Lake County Suburban Life, finding former athletes for his series, "Glory Days."

The book is available for $19.66 at

The site's description of the book says, "From the three-headed monster of John Lowenstein, Gary Roenicke and Benny Ayala to the speedy Al Bumbry to the 21-game losing streak and the comeback year of 1989, it's all here. Orioles fans, rejoice. Even former Pirates bullpen ace Kent Tekulve gets a word in."
