All hail the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse

August 13, 2013 · 2 comments

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.










Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!

    Jay Goldberg is the best! Great host, great interviewer, great person. And Bergino’s is a lovely place to pick up a few special baseball-related items as gifts.
