Author Series: Matt Silverman

Wednesday, June 5, 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 5th at 1pm, the Hall of Fame will welcome author Matt Silverman to talk about his new book, Shea Stadium Remembered: The Mets, Jets, and Beatlemania.

Over its 44-year existence Shea Stadium witnessed an array of sporting and entertainment events, all detailed in this lively tribute by New York Mets historian Matt Silverman.

The book details the memorable games and the unforgettable characters, including Hall of Famer Tom Seaver, Seinfeld friend Keith Hernandez, and NFL star Joe Namath. By the time of its demolition, the Mets had played more games at Shea Stadium than the Brooklyn Dodgers had ever played at Ebbets Field. In total, Shea Stadium hosted seven National League Championship Series, four World Series, and the American Football League Championship game in 1968

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.
