Author Series: Dan Schlossberg

Wednesday, June 12, 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, June 12th at 1pm, the Hall of Fame will welcome author Dan Schlossberg to talk about his new book, When the Braves Ruled the Diamond.

Former AP sportswriter and longtime travel writer Dan Schlossberg covers the record-breaking era that transformed the Atlanta Braves from a laughingstock into America’s Team. This newly revised edition of the book features additional material on new Hall of Famers Chipper Jones and team architect John Schuerholz.

From 1991 through 2005, the Braves did something no professional sports team has matched, finishing in first place for 14 consecutive seasons. During that stretch, the Braves parlayed powerful pitching with potent hitting that produced under pressure. Hall of Fame manager Bobby Cox oversaw the Braves of that era, leading the team to five National League pennants and a World Series title.

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.
