Ron Darling
Tuesday, April 2nd at 7pm

Join us for an evening with former NY Met and Emmy-nominated broadcaster, Ron Darling as he speaks about and signs copies of his new memoir 108 Stitches: Loose Threads, Ripping Yarns, and the Darndest Characters From My Time in the Game.

About the book:
This is New York Times bestselling author and Emmy-nominated broadcaster Ron Darling’s 108 baseball anecdotes that connect America’s game to the men who played it.

In 108 Stitches, Ron Darling offers his own take on the “six degrees of separation” game and knits together a collection of wild, wise, and wistful stories reflecting the full arc of a life in and around our national pastime.

Darling has played with or reported on just about everybody who has put on a uniform since 1983, and they in turn have played with or reported on just about everybody who put on a uniform in a previous generation. Through relationships with baseball legends on and off the field, like Yale coach Smoky Joe Wood, Willie Mays, Bart Giamatti, Tom Seaver and Mickey Mantle, Darling’s reminiscences reach all the way back to Babe Ruth and other turn-of-the-century greats.

Like the 108 stitches on a baseball, Darling’s experiences are interwoven with every athlete who has ever played, every coach or manager who ever sat in a dugout, and with every fan who ever played hooky from work or school to sit in the bleachers for a day game.

Darling’s anecdotes come together to tell the story of his time in the game, and the story of the game itself.
