Author Series: Mitchell Nathanson
Our Author Series brings noted baseball authors to Cooperstown for special lectures and book signings during the summer months. These programs are included with the cost of admission. The program includes a presentation in the Bullpen Theater, followed by a book signing in the Library Atrium. Presentation at 1 pm.
The Hall of Fame will welcome author Mitchell Nathanson to talk about his new book, God Almighty Hisself: The Life and Legacy of Dick Allen.
Veteran author Mitchell Nathanson presents the career and life of slugging star Dick Allen against the backdrop of organized baseball's continuing desegregation process.
Nathanson shows how Allen's career exposed the racial double standard that had become entrenched in the game and the forces that were bent on preserving the status quo. In the process, God Almighty Hisself unveils the strange and maddening career of a man who somehow managed to fulfill and frustrate expectations all at once.
