HARTFORD, Conn. — The Mark Twain House & Museum is pleased to present five leading experts from the Society of American Baseball Research (SABR), who will engage in a lively panel discussion of “base ball” during the 19th century. The moderator will be the Mark Twain House & Museums’s Education Manager, Craig Hotchkiss, who is a former vintage “base ball” player and frequent presenter of the museum’s community outreach program, Base Ball as Mark Twain Knew It.
This fascinating–and free–discussion on the national pastime will take place on Wednesday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m. in the Mark Twain Museum Center. Panelists include John Thorn, David Arcidiacono, Gary O’Maxfield, Joe Williams, and Bill Ryczek.
Time will be reserved for questions from the audience, and following the program, the authors will sign copies of their books for the public. Copies of their books will be available for sale in the Mark Twain House bookstore.
