Sports Writer Roger Angell to Speak at Hopkins

Author Roger Angell give a talk and a reading at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2, in 111 Mergenthaler Hall on the Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. Angell will read from his book A Pitcher's Story: Innings With David Cone, which will be officially released to the public two days later on Friday, May 4.

Angell is a writer and senior fiction editor at The New Yorker, where he originated the magazine's "Sporting Scene" department. His celebrated books about baseball include The Summer Game, Five Seasons, and Season Ticket. He lives in New York.

On July 18, 1999, New York Yankees pitcher David Cone threw the 16th perfect game in baseball history--that's no runs, no hits, no one on base. It was a high point in a long and already stellar career, a career that continues to this day. Extraordinarily combative and emotional on the mound (one player calls him "the axe murderer"), Cone is also one of the most thoughtful and articulate to ever play the game. Over Cone's 15 years in the major leagues, Angell has regularly dug beyond the hype surrounding the ace hurler's celebrity to something deeper and more fascinating: how the mind of one of our greatest athletes works, on and off the field.

This event is free and open to the public. Call 410-516- 6287 for information.
