The Bookshelf Podcast: Charley Rosen

March 11, 2012 · 0 comments

With St. Patrick’s Day just ahead, what better time to discuss Charlie Rosen’s new book,The Emerald Diamond: How the Irish Transformed America’s Greatest Pastime?

Rosen previous sports work — over a dozen titles, both fiction and non-fiction — have been almost exclusively about basketball. The lone exception: his Bullpen Diaries: Mariano Rivera, Bronx Dreams, Pinstripe Legends, and the Future of the New York Yankees, which I included in a roundup review on last fall.

Rosen will be featured at an program at Foley’s NY Pub and Restaurant on Wednesday, March 21, at 6 p.m. (More info here.)

Just about 10 years ago, I published an article in Irish America magazine (Feb.March, 2003) on the same topic, albeit on a much smaller scale.
