"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.

Mother Daughter Book Discussions facilitated by librarian Barbara Buckley
Great Neck Library, Wednesday, July 26 at 8pm
Has there ever been a more precious, yet complex relationship than that of a mother and a daughter? Whether the journey has been perfect or fraught with stress, the best way to understand this emotional minefield is through literature.
We will explore this intimate kinship in a reading group series. Beginning on Wednesday, July 19, the group will enjoy the film "Postcards from the Edge," based on the autobiography of Carrie Fisher and her love/hate relationship with her mother, Debbie Reynolds.
The week following, on Wednesday, July 26, discuss The Mare by Mary Gaitskill. This novel probes the existential question—what is a mother?
Elizabeth Strout's slim but substantive novel, My Name is Lucy Barton will be discussed on Wednesday, August 9. It plunges right into the estranged relationship of Elizabeth and her mother, a woman she has not seen in years.
To end the series on Wednesday, August 30, the group will explore the wonderful Amy Tan's book The Valley of Amazement. From The Joy Luck Club to The Kitchen God's Wife, Tan is at the epicenter studying the phenomenally complicated mother-daughter love affair.
Register online (on the July 19 form) or by calling the Reference Dept. at 466-8055, ext. 218/219.
Please call early if you'd like us to interloan any or all titles in the series. It takes 1-2 weeks for interloan books to arrive at the library, as well as your time for reading!! (added from Eventkeeper)
