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 Saturday, August 4th at 1pm, the Hall of Fame will welcome author Bill Sullivan to talk about his new book, Long Before The Miracle.
In 1969, the New York Mets overcame all odds to deliver a baseball miracle. But that miracle was not the beginning of the Mets’ franchise. An award-winning book recognized by the Society for American Baseball Research, Long Before the Miracle charts the dawn of the New York Mets, explaining who was responsible for influencing Major League Baseball to consider expansion into New York City. Author Bill Sullivan also offers character sketches of the original Mets and players from the early-to-mid 60s who wore the pinstripes at both the Polo Grounds and Shea Stadium.
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.
