"Electric October" with Kevin Cook
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, October 19 at 7pm
Seven ballgames shaped the rest of their days. A true tale of fame, friendship, teamwork, memory, and life’s biggest challenge: how we deal with the cards that fate deals us.

The 1947 World Series was “the most exciting ever” in the words of Joe DiMaggio, with a decade’s worth of drama packed into seven games between the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers. It was Jackie Robinson’s first Series, a postwar spectacle featuring Frank Sinatra, Ernest Hemingway, and President Harry Truman in supporting roles. It was also the first televised World Series -- sportswriters called it “Electric October.”

Amid all the star power, the outcome hinged on the managers Bucky Harris and Burt Shotton -- and four role players: Bill Bevens, Al Gionfriddo, Cookie Lavagetto and Snuffy Stirnweiss. Six men plucked from obscurity to shine on the sport’s greatest stage. Three would never play another big-league inning. All six would soon be forgotten by the general public.

“Electric October” introduces us to men who never knew they were bound for glory. For some, the ’47 Series was a memory to hold on to. For others, it would haunt them to the end of their days.

Join Kevin Cook for our intimate Clubhouse conversation on Thursday, October 19. We’ll hear Kevin’s insights -- at once heartbreaking and uplifting -- into what fame and heroism truly mean.

RSVP required to attend.

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

Kevin Cook is the author of the award-winning “Tommy’s Honor,” “Titanic Thompson,” “Kitty Genovese,” and “The Dad Report: Fathers, Sons, and Baseball Families.” He is a former senior editor at “Sports Illustrated.” Cook has written for “The New York Times,” “Men’s Journal,” GQ,” “Playboy,” “Smithsonian,” and “Details.”

Following our discussion, a live 2017 baseball playoff game will be on the Clubhouse screen. (Clubhouse)
