Clement: Author Nancy Finley

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 - 7:00pm

This event will be held at our Clement street location. 

 

 

Please join Green Apple Books on Clement street Wednesday, February 22nd at 7:00pm as we welcome Author Nancy Finley, reading from and discussing her Oakland Athletics history book Finley Ball.

 

This is the story of a losing baseball team that became a 1970s dynasty, thanks to the unorthodox strategies and stunts of two very colorful men.

 

When Charlie Finley bought the A's in 1960, he was an outsider to the game—a insurance businessman with a larger-than-life personality. He brought his cousin Carl on as his right-hand man, moved the team from Kansas City to Oakland, and pioneered a new way to put together a winning team. With legendary players like Reggie Jackson, Catfish Hunter, and Vida Blue, the Finleys' Oakland A's won three straight World Series and riveted the nation.
