Thanks to Daniel Solzman for this update:
George Plimpton lives!
Here’s news you can use!
Mr. Cobb will be presented with his CASEY Award, a specially-made blue & gold Louisville Slugger, at the 31st Annual CASEY Awards Banquet from 2-4 p.m. at Crosley’s Sports Bar & Eatery, located at 4910 Vine Street, St. Bernard, OH (a suburb of Cincinnati).
For more information, please visit: www.spitballmag.com.”
I hope you will be present at the Banquet, but even if you can’t make it (and I know some of you live too far away to come), I can get a book signed for you and mail it to you afterwards. So … please let me know if you want me to include you … and how many copies … in my order to the publisher.
And please, forward this email to anybody I left out whom you know will be interested in coming to the Banquet or ordering a signed copy of the book.
