The Greatest Character of the Game: Casey Stengel's Baseball

In its longstanding relationship with baseball, New York City has been home to four Major League teams: the Yankees, Giants, Dodgers, and Mets. But only one man wore all four uniforms: Casey Stengel. Dubbed by sportswriters "The Professor" for his expansive knowledge of all things baseball and named "The Greatest Character of the Game" by the MLB Network, Stengel was one of the sport's most prominent fixtures. Still, his career was not without controversy, most notably when the Mets finished last in their league for all four years he managed the team.

Join Steve Steinberg, baseball historian and co-author with Lyle Spatz of 1921: The Yankees, the Giants, and the Battle for Baseball Supremacy in New York (University of Nebraska Press, 2010); Marty Appel, former public relations director and television producer for the New York Yankees and author of Munson: The Life and Death of a Yankee Captain (Anchor Books, 2009); Toni Mollett, Casey Stengel's grand-niece and founder of the Casey Stengel Baseball Center; Steven Goldman, author of Forging Genius: The Making of Casey Stengel (Potomac Books, 2006); Jim Kaplan, co-author of The Gospel According to Casey (St. Martin’s Press, 1992) and The Greatest Game Ever Pitched (Triumph Books, 2011), for a discussion moderated by Dan Fost, journalist and author of Giants Past & Present (MVP Books, 2010), for an intimate look at the career and legacy of this icon of America's pastime.
