For all the great programs the Bergino Baseball Clubouse sponsors and hosts, it’s nice to see Jay Goldberg’s labor of love get some swell-deserved recognition, as in this piece from The Wall Street Journal in July.
Goldberg has opened his “home” to countless authors and artists to basically chew the fat in a relaxed atmosphere with an engaged audience and I think I speak for all of us when I say, “Thanks for the opportunity.”
Reading the WSJ piece — written by Bob Osborne, whose book, The Brooklyn Cyclones: Hardball Dreams and the New Coney Island is one of the 501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read before They Die – reminds me that I never posted photos from my own event at the Clubhouse back in May. It took awhile to assemble the pictures, but I wanted to use this opportunity to say what a great time my wife, Faith, daughter, Rachel (the photographer here), and I had with our host. Thought-provoking questions from Jay and the audience went a long way into offering comfortable experience for someone who’s not accustomed to public speaking.
