Jim Bouton to Speak on New Book


Contributed by Stephen Mosher

On Tuesday, September 30, at 8:00 p.m., in Textor 103, Jim Bouton, best known for Ball Four, which the New York Public Library calls one of "the books of the century," will be speaking on his recent book Foul Ball.

Foul Ball tells the story of Bouton's failed attempt to save Waconah Park in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. It is a story of small city politics, stadium financing, and freedom of expression that would not be believed if it were not true.

This lecture is cosponsored by the Office of the Provost, the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance, the Roy H. Park School of Communications, and the Department of Sport Management and Media. For further information contact Stephen Mosher, Department of Sport Management and Media.
