LOU PINIELLA Booksigning
We are thrilled to host a booksigning visit by legendary former Seattle Mariner manager Lou Piniella. He will be here for his memoir, Lou: Fifty Years of Kicking Dirt, Playing Hard, and Winning Big in the Sweet Spot of Baseball (Harper, co-authored with Bill Madden). This book recounts the almost fifty years Lou Piniella was making his singular mark on the big leagues - as a player, most notably with the New York Yankees, and later as a manager there, with Seattle (our only truly successful manager, ever), Cincinnati, Tampa Bay, and the Chicago Cubs. His Seattle years do figure prominently with stories of Ken Griffey, Jr., Randy Johnson, and Alex Rodriguez here.
In an effort to keep things moving along, Lou will be signing copies of the book only, no memorabilia. Also, photos are permitted from the signing line, but there will be no posed photos with Lou.
