"Circus Maximus" and the Business of Baseball with Andrew Zimbalist
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, February 5 at 7pm
Leading off our first author event of 2015, the country's preeminent sports economist returns to the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse.

“Andrew Zimbalist is a perpetual source of insight on the economics and administration of modern sports.” -Bob Costas

For his third appearance in the Clubhouse -- and on the date of its release -- we celebrate the newest book by noted sports economist Andrew Zimbalist.

Athletes compete for national honor in Olympic and World Cup games. But the road to these mega events is paved by big business. How did both the Olympics and the World Cup evolve from noble sporting events to exhibits of excess? Andrew Zimbalist traces the path.

Of course, this being the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, we will also discuss the economic issues of the day in Major League Baseball.

Be part of a wide-ranging, fascinating Clubhouse conversation with Andrew Zimbalist on February 5th for our first author event of 2015.

Autographed and personalized copies of “Circus Maximus” and “The Sabermetric Revolution” will be available for purchase.

Andrew Zimbalist is the country’s preeminent sports economist, a frequent sports industry consultant and media commentator, professor at Smith College, and author of many books, including “The Sabermetric Revolution,” “Baseball and Billions,” “Circling the Bases,” and “In the Best Interests of Baseball.” (Clubhouse)
