Author Series: Tyler Kepner

Wednesday, July 17, 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, July 17th at 1pm, the Hall of Fame will welcome author Tyler Kepner as he talks about his new book, K: A History of Baseball in Ten Pitches.

New York Times writer Tyler Kepner traces the colorful stories and fascinating folklore behind the 10 major pitches thrown at the professional level. Each chapter highlights a different pitch, from the blazing fastball to the fluttering knuckleball to the slippery spitball. Infusing every page with passion for the game, Kepner brings readers inside the minds of combatants who are 60 feet, six inches away from their opponents at home plate.

Filled with priceless insights from many of the best pitchers in baseball history including 22 Hall of Famers—from Steve Carlton and Bob Gibson to Greg Maddux and Mariano Rivera - K: A History of Baseball in Ten Pitches offers a definitive look at the art of pitching.

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.
