A Baseball Triple Play: An Evening with Pete Van Wieren, Hal Jacobs & Dave Cohen Print
Date: Tuesday, August 10 2010, 7:15 pm—9:00 pm
Location: Decatur
Event Type: Author Talks
Series: Georgia Center for the Book's Festival of Writers
Age Group: Adult (18+)

If you love baseball, you’ll hit a home run with our program this evening! We welcome three authors of exciting new books about the sport including long-time Braves announcer Pete Van Wieren; the radio voice of Georgia State University, Dave Cohen; and wonderful Decatur author and dad-coach Hal Jacobs. Van Wieren’s book, written with veteran journalist Jack Wilkinson (who will also join us) is ”Of Mikes and Men,” a wonderful reminiscence of three decades of calling Braves’ games over the air. Cohen’s book is the delightfully informative ”Matzoh Balls and Baseballs: Conversations with 17 Former Jewish Major League Baseball Players;” and Jacobs has written ”Ball Crazy: Confessions of a Dad-Coach,” a thoughtful reflection on his and his 12-year-old son’s experiences on the diamond. Please don’t miss this memorable evening of baseball chat!
