This beautiful full-color hardbound book is loaded with great anecdotes, and remembrances by a man who truly loves baseball. When Lou Gehrig’s disease robbed Chris Mavraedis of the ability to speak, he translated his passion for the game into stories, blog posts, and emails. These pieces and photographs (24, in honor of Willie Mays Jersey number) are inspiring, often hilarious, at times heartrending, and will delight anyone who ever fell in love with baseball.
Chris’s wife, Liz Mavraedis, editor Bob Sockolov and KNBR’s Marty Lurie will discuss the book and all things baseball.
Ballpark snacks available at noon!
