Friday, May 15, 6:30pm

Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park, WA (17171 Bothell Way NE)

Steve will appear with award-winning historian Mark Amour, coauthor of In Pursuit of Pennants: Baseball Operations from Deadball to Moneyball http://www.pursuitofpennants.com/

"The Colonel and Hug explores that remarkably fruitful relationship in a meticulous account brimming with quotes from the period. Some believe the Yankees’ acquisition of Babe Ruth—arguably the greatest player of all time—was what transformed the Yankees. Ruppert declared in 1931 that 'getting him was the first and most important step we took toward making the Yankees champion.' But the 'him' he was referring to was Miller Huggins, not Babe Ruth."

Steve and Mark will make PowerPoint presentations with photos.
