Marching to Astoria

Come to Astoria this Saturday for a Terrific time. The Queens Baseball Convention will be there, at Katch Astoria, 31-19 Newtown Avenue, and I’ll be there, talking up Tom Seaver at 5 PM. I’m moderating a panel commemorating and celebrating the 50th anniversary of Tom’s major league debut and his legacy as the greatest Met ever, culminating in the presentation of the Gil Hodges Unforgettable Fire Award (albeit in absentia) to Tom. Joining me on the panel will be two authors who know their Seaver: Bill Ryczek, who wrote the essential The Amazin’ Mets, 1962-1969, and Matthew Silverman, who’s written just about everything else. We should each have some of our work on hand if you’re interested.

Doors open at 11:30 AM. Other panels include Q&A with Bobby Valentine and Tim Teufel and an array of deep Met dives. Best of all, you’ll be surrounded by Mets fans and Mets baseball in January. For more information, take a look here. For a great day, see you there.

And listen in here, to the Rising Apple Report, for a mountain of Seaver talk and general Metsian joviality.
