A Baseball Triple Play: An Evening with Pete Van Wieren, Hal Jacobs & Dave Cohen
Decatur Library Auditorium
August 10, 2010, 7:15 P.M.
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!
