Hall of Famer Jim Palmer
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, June 2 at 8pm
When was the last time you met a Hall of Famer? Well, Thursday, June 2 is your day.

In 1966, Jim Palmer was just 20 years old when he became the youngest pitcher to throw a World Series shutout, helping lead the Baltimore Orioles to their first-ever championship. Two years later, Palmer's budding career almost ended due to arm problems. Yet, he mounted an inspiring comeback and reached the pinnacle of his profession, becoming the winningest pitcher of the 1970s and the only hurler to win a World Series game in three different decades.

A Hall of Famer... with three World Series rings, three Cy Young Awards, six All-Star selections, an exemplary record as a model spokesperson for charities and corporations, and a long tenure as a TV baseball analyst.

Meet Jim Palmer in the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse for a Book Signing. At 8:00 PM, we will start admitting those on our Preferred Advance Purchase Line. To guarantee your spot on the line and a signed book, please use the ticket link or call us at 212-226-7150 for assistance.

Each person attending the Jim Palmer event on June 2 must purchase one or more books. Jim Palmer will sign only “Nine Innings To Success” purchased through the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse. He will not autograph any other books or items. (Clubhouse)

Have you experienced "compassion fatigue"?!
