Respond as “GOING” on Chuck Simon’s Facebook event for a chance to win an autographed copy of “The New Baseball Bible” or “When the Braves Ruled the Diamond.”
“The New Baseball Bible” is an oversized, illustrated paperback that provides readers with an offbeat history of baseball, including more than 1,000 illustrations – many never published previously – lots of baseball trivia and over 10,000 items of information. The final chapter, A New Century, brings readers right through the Chicago Cubs’ historic 2016 World Series victory.
Schlossberg, a former AP sportswriter, weaves in little-known facts, figures and quotes, many presented in an easy-to-read sidebar format that makes it possible to pick up the book in the middle or even read it backwards. Other Atlanta appearances include a stop at the Cumberland Park Barnes & Noble on June 23rd and The Braves 400 Fan Club on June 24th. Online Purchase of "The New Baseball Bible" is available at Barnes & Noble or Amazon.
