A long-time Kinston native and Negro League Baseball player releases his autobiography. Thursday evening Carl Long signed copies of his book "A Game of Faith."
Long says the story serves as an inspiration for young men who need guidance. For many years, Long dedicated himself to meeting with groups in the community and fears one day, he won't be around to share his story.
So to ensure it lives on, he wrote a book. "Good things have happened to me because of the way I brought up. I was born in Rockhill SC on a farm picking cotton. At the age of 14, I went off to play baseball. Baseball is my life.” Long said.
His publisher and co-author Diane Taylor says she is amazed by his story. This is the first book her company has released and it’s been very successful. In the last two weeks, they’ve sold 150 books.
