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 25th at 1pm, the Hall of Fame will welcome author Mark Littell to talk about his book, On the 8th Day God Made Baseball.
It’s rare that an athlete writes a book without a ghost writer, but former major leaguer Mark Littell has done just that. A onetime closer with the Kansas City Royals, Littell recounts his personal story, growing up in poverty in Missouri, his struggles in the minor leagues, and his emergence as a standout reliever in Kansas City. Although best known as the pitcher who surrendered Chris Chambliss’ pennant-winning home run in 1977, Littell has a story of perseverance that runs far deeper.
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.
