Our Author Series brings noted baseball authors to Cooperstown for special lectures and book signings during the summer months. These programs are included with the cost of admission.
On Saturday, August 27th at 1pm, the Baseball Hall of Fame welcomes Matt Silverman author of One Year Dynasty: Inside the Rise and Fall of the ’86 Mets.
After being knocked out of contention the previous two seasons, the New York Mets blasted through the National League in 1986. They won blowouts, nailbiters, fights, and a 14-inning game that ended with one pitcher on the mound, another in right field, and an All-Star catcher playing third base. Going beyond the partying and excess, veteran author Matt Silverman recounts step by step the Mets’ meteoric rise in 1986, when they captured their first division title in over a decade, shattered the franchise record, and then won it all.
The program includes a presentation in the Bullpen Theater, followed by a book signing in the Library Atrium. Presentation at 1 pm. Book signing at 1:30 pm.
