Author Series: Skip Lockwood

Wednesday, August 15, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

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, August 15th at 1pm, the Hall of Fame will welcome author Skip Lockwood to talk about his new book, Insight Pitch.

In telling a story spanning three decades, retired relief ace Skip Lockwood recalls a career that included stops with the Kansas City Athletics, Seattle Pilots, Milwaukee Brewers, California Angels, New York Mets, and Boston Red Sox. Along the way, Lockwood details on-the-field triumphs and off-the-field shenanigans, as well as the enormous psychological process that he underwent every time he took the mound. Humorous and insightful, Lockwood’s story includes encounters with numerous sporting legends, from Jesse Owens to Satchel Paige to Catfish Hunter.

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.
