RIDGEWOOD, N.J. – Legendary New York Yankee player and manager Lou Piniella is coming to Ridgewood in May.
Piniella and bestselling sportswriter Bill Madden will be at Bookends to sign copies of their new book, entitled Lou: Fifty Years of Kicking Dirt, Playing Hard, and Winning Big in the Sweet Spot of Baseball.
In the memoir, Piniella, who once lived in Allendale , “looks back over his nearly fifty-year career as a player and a manager, sharing insights and stories about some of his most memorable moments and some of the biggest names in Major League Baseball,” according to publisher Harper Collins.
According to the publisher, “Piniella speaks from the heart about his teams and his players, offering a detailed, up-close portrait of the Bronx Zoo’s raucous personalities such as Reggie Jackson and Catfish Hunter, as well as his close friendship with Thurman Munson and his unusual relationship with George Steinbrenner.”
The signing is slated for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 16 at Bookends, 211 East Ridgewood Ave. For more information, CLICK HERE .
