"The Cooperstown Casebook" with Jay Jaffe
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Wednesday, July 26 at 7pm
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, tucked away in upstate New York in a small town called Cooperstown, is far from any major media market or big league stadium. Yet no sports hall of fame’s membership is so hallowed, nor its qualifications so debated, nor its voting process so dissected.

Since its founding in 1936, the Hall of Fame’s standards for election have been nebulous, and its selection processes arcane, resulting in confusion among voters, not to mention mistakes in who has been recognized and who has been bypassed. Numerous so-called “greats” have been inducted despite having not been so great, while popular but controversial players such as all-time home run leader Barry Bonds and all-time hits leader Pete Rose are on the outside looking in.

Now, in “The Cooperstown Casebook,” Jay Jaffe takes us through his revolutionary ranking system. The foundation of Jaffe’s approach is JAWS, an acronym for the Jaffe WAR Score, which he developed over a decade ago. Through JAWS, each candidate can be objectively compared on the basis of career and peak value to the players at his position who are already in the Hall of Fame. Because of its utility, JAWS has gained an increasing amount of exposure in recent years. Through his analysis, Jaffe shows why the Hall of Fame still matters and how it can remain relevant in the 21st century.

Join Jay Jaffe for our intimate -- and lively -- Clubhouse conversation on Wednesday, July 26. RSVP required to attend.

Autographed and personalized copies of “The Cooperstown Casebook” will be available for purchase. The author will sign only books purchased in the Clubhouse.

Jay Jaffe is a contributing baseball writer for SI.com. He is the founder of the Futility Infielder website, one of the oldest baseball blogs, and from 2005-2012 was a columnist for “Baseball Prospectus.” He has been a recurring guest on MLB Network’s “MLB Now” and “Clubhouse Confidential” shows and a member of the Baseball Writers Association of America since 2011.

Levels: BOOK CLUB with Jamie!
Great Neck Library, Saturday, July 29 at 7:30pm
For our July meeting we'll be reading Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he's pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he's never met. We'll also be reading I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson for our next meeting. Stop by Levels to pick up a copy of each and start reading!
Levels events take place at
