On June 12 at 8 p.m. I will appear as a guest on TV Ontario’s flagship show The Agenda With Steve Paikin to discuss my book BABE RUTH – A Superstar’s Legacy, and in particular, why the issue of racial segregation may have been the reason Ruth never became a big-league manager. It should be an interesting discussion. The show will air again at 11 p.m. and be live-streamed on Twitter. It will also be available online in audio and video podcast at iTunes, and on YouTube.

Other media interviews, both in the U.S. and Canada, are also coming up and in July we take the book on the road. Here is the schedule so far …
Tuesday, July 24 – Appearance at the Babe Ruth Birthplace & Museum in Baltimore for a talk and book signing at 4 p.m. The book includes a chapter on the museum and Michael Gibbons, the man who made it what it is.
Thursday, July 26 – Presentation at the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum in Cooperstown, New York beginning at 1 p.m. in the Bullpen Theater, followed by a book signing in the Atrium. This appearance is part of the Hall of Fame’s Author Series for the year. A total of 14 books were selected, including BABE RUTH – A Superstar’s Legacy.
Saturday, July 28 – I will be accompanied by Babe Ruth’s grandson Tom Stevens, who wrote the Foreword, for a book signing at Willis Monei Books, 139 Main Street, in Cooperstown. This will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. and is during Induction Weekend, which is of course a high-traffic time in the town. Of note, this will be the very first time that Tom Stevens and I appear together to sign books.
Other things are coming up too, so stay tuned.
