Author Series: Brian Wright

Wednesday, August 14, 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, August 14th at 1pm, the Hall of Fame will welcome author Brian Wright as he talks about his new book, Mets in Tens: The Best and Worst of an Amazin' History.

From the greatest left-handed pitchers to the worst trades to the best single-game hitting performances, author Brian Wright ranks the most unforgettable memories in the history of New York’s National League franchise.

Since their inception in 1962, the New York Mets have not traveled the straight and narrow path. These top 10 lists chart the many highs and lows over that journey—from World Series victories in 1969 and 1986 through an injury-shattered 2017 season.

Wright also relives the way that the team’s passionate fans have lovingly embraced the triumphs, such as when Mike Piazza hit a dramatic home run after 9/11 to help lift a devastated city.

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.
