Home Run: The Italian American Embrace of Baseball – Virtual Event

I AM Books will be hosting a free zoom webinar event on April 14, 2022, with UNP author Lawrence Baldassaro. Focusing on Tony Lazzeri as the person who first drew large numbers of Italian fans to the ballpark and who did more to enhance the public perception of Italian Americans than anyone before him.

Event description from I AM Books:

Join us in conversation with Lawrence Baldassaro, author of Beyond Di Maggio and Tony Lazzeri. And Richard “Dick” Johnson, curator at the Sports Museum of New England located in Boston, author of numerous books on baseball, and one of the most knowledgeable historians of Boston sports.
