Author Series: Thomas Stone

Wednesday, July 24, 2019 - 1:00pm

Our Authors 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 Wednesday, July 24th at 1pm, the Hall of Fame will welcome author Thomas Stone as he talks about his new book, Now Taking the Field:Baseball’s All-Time Dream Teams for All 30 Franchises.

Who is the best player at each position throughout the history of each major league baseball franchise? Author and historian Tom Stone attempts to answer that question through his new book, Now Taking the Field. Stone provides robust 30-man all-time “dream team” rosters, selected based on a combination of Wins Above Replacement (WAR), traditional statistics, awards, and post-season accomplishments.

In this comprehensive book, Stone provides additional features for each all-time team, including starting lineups, depth charts, comparisons with numerous past authors, fan surveys, and more. MLB columnist Joe Posnanski calls the book “A great reminder that there is nothing more fun than a good baseball argument… Endlessly fun for baseball fans everywhere.”

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.
