For New York fans, there may be no more appropriate place to talk baseball than at a blues club. But the Pitch: Talks on Baseball series, launching tonight, focuses on the upside: our love of the game. As Andre Barzun famously noted, “Whoever wants to know the hearts and mind of America had better learn baseball.” “Pitch” gives fans a chance to interact with sportswriters and commentators through discussion on all aspects of the game. Boston Globe beat writer Pete Abraham is the moderator, and panelists include ESPN’s Buster Olney and Adam Rubin, the New York Times’ Tyler Kepner, and Sports Illustrated’s Jay Jaffe. Enjoy storytelling, debates, and good conversation about the game.
