"42 Faith" with Ed Henry
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, April 6 at 7pm
“Quit praying for me alone, Ma, and pray for the whole team.” -Jackie Robinson’s letter to his mother in 1947, his rookie season

Journalist and baseball lover Ed Henry reveals for the first time the backstory of faith that guided Jackie Robinson into not only the baseball record books but the annals of civil rights advancement as well. Through recently discovered sermons, interviews with Robinson’s family and friends, and even an unpublished book by the player himself, Henry details a side of Jackie’s humanity that few have seen.

“42 Faith” also digs deep into why Jackie was the man he was and what both drove him and challenged him after his retirement. From his early years before baseball, to his time with Branch Rickey and the Brooklyn Dodgers, to his failing health in his final years, we see a man of faith.

Join Ed Henry for our intimate Clubhouse conversation on Thursday, April 6. An evening for these days.

For a guaranteed seat, purchase of a signed book or Bergino Baseball Clubhouse gift certificate/scrip required. Books will be signed/personalized at the event.

Ed Henry serves as Fox News Channel’s Chief National Correspondent. He joined the network in June 2011. Throughout his tenure at Fox News, Henry covered all major news stories involving President Obama and his administration. Henry has won numerous journalism honors, including the Everett McKinley Dirksen Award for Distinguished Reporting of Congress and the White House Correspondents Association's Merriman Smith Award for excellence in presidential coverage under deadline pressure in 2008. Henry also served in the prestigious post of president of the White House Correspondents’ Association from 2012-2013. Prior to joining Fox News Channel, Henry was at CNN from 2004-2011, where he served as the network's senior White House correspondent and a congressional correspondent. He began his career working for Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jack Anderson and later joined the newspaper Roll Call as a reporter, where he rose to senior editor.

Complimentary beer/whiskey for all ticket holders (Clubhouse)
