Don attempts to do everything in his power to “turn tragedy into triumph,” with emotionally powerful prose that knits together poignant anecdotes, bittersweet humor, and wisdom drawn from baseball’s life lessons that Clint and his father shared. As Clint’s friend Roberto Clemente Jr. states in the book’s Foreword, “If you have had the good fortune of knowing Clint, Carly, Mary, or Don Seymour, each chapter will bring a smile or a tear. If you love baseball, you will be reminded of the enduring values and impact of the game. If you are a parent, some life lessons will be reinforced by a father who got it right. In any event, as Don suggests, you are certain to give those you love an extra hug.” All net proceeds from the sale of Untouchable will be donated to The Clint Seymour “Play Ball” Fund (

Pittsburgh Trib Live reporter Rob Biertempfel took notice of The Fund this week with his publication on February 21st in “Pirates Notebook” with “Walker Honors a Friend”:

biertempfelWhile driving from Pittsburgh to Florida for spring training, Neil Walker made an important stop in Mount Pleasant, S.C.  Clint Seymour, one of Walker’s best friends, died in April after being sucker punched and striking his head on concrete. Seymour, a Mt. Lebanon native, had moved to South Carolina six months earlier.  Walker is vice president of the Clint Seymour Play Ball Fund. Walker’s visit to Mount Pleasant, where he spoke to youth league players, coincided with the fund’s launch.  “The overall objective is to either rehabilitate a facility or (establish) a field in Clint’s honor,” Walker said.  To raise money for the fund, Walker plans to conduct a youth baseball camp Aug. 6 in Pittsburgh. He still is putting together the details but expects to hold it somewhere in the South Hills.
