Kennedy, a senior editor at Sports Illustrated, received the coveted prize for 56: Joe DiMaggio and the Last Magic Number in Sports. He will pick up the award at a luncheon in March in Cincinnati. For more details, visit the Spitball website or contact editor Mike Shannon at 513-442-0025.
I had a chance to talk with Kennedy about the DiMaggio project and the Casey Award last week.
The interview marks the return of the Podcast edition of The Bookshelf, which I hope to make a more regular feature this year (but you know how those New Years’ resolutions go).
