PITCH: Talks On Baseball, a new speaker series about baseball, is swinging into New York City on January
14, 2015 at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill. Launched in Toronto in 2014, PITCH: Talks On Baseball is now set to
debut in the U.S. next year with its first stop here in Times Square.
PITCH connects diehard baseball fans with sports insiders by hosting informed and entertaining discussions on
all aspects of the game. Pete Abraham, Red Sox beat writer for the Boston Globe, and formerly the Mets and
Yankees beat writer for The Journal News, will be acting as moderator for the NY event with an exciting full
lineup of speakers.
“It’s always baseball season in New York and Pitch Talks will add fuel to the hot stove,” says Abraham. “Come
hear from the experts.”
PITCH: Talks On Baseball attendees can expect a night of storytelling, presentations, debate, panels and
lectures by some of the biggest experts in baseball which in the past have included: Dan Shulman (ESPN’s
Sunday Night Baseball), Jonah Keri (Grantland), Shi Davidi (Sportsnet), Morgan Campbell (Toronto Star), Stacy
May Fowles (The Walrus, Deadspin, National Post), and Bob Elliot (Toronto Sun, Baseball Hall of Fame),
among many others.
Ken Rosenthal (FOX Sports) and Buster Olney (ESPN) were panelists on the NY event.
