“Slicing Big Apple Baseball,” Baseball Talk w/ Baseball Columnist Prof. Herb Fischer Register

April 30, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Professor Herbert S. Fischer, former baseball columnist, current NYC tour guide and associate professor of history and political science at City College, will deliver an interactive, nostalgic talk on the history of NYC baseball.

Professor Fischer’s talk, dubbed “Slicing Big Apple Baseball,” will take the audience from NYC’s baseball roots before the Giants, Dodgers, and Yankees, all the way to the present day of cable TV and television. It will culminate in a brief, simulated game of stickball, and a serving of egg creams.
