Bridge to Baseball

Walk-offs, Last Licks, and Final Outs: Baseball’s Grand (and-not-so-grand) Finales is the title of former Sports Illustrated baseball writer Jim Kaplan’s latest book — and an evening talk he’s giving Wednesday, August 6, at 7 p.m. at the West Tisbury Library.

Mr. Kaplan will chat about the connection between baseball and bridge, which he describes as being “joined at the hip.” The program will include a trivia quiz and the winner will receive a free book.

He writes the bridge column for the Vineyard Gazette and has authored 18 books.

Copies of his latest book, co-authored with Bill Chuck, will be available for sale, with a portion of proceeds donated to the library.

The evening is free and refreshments will be served. For details, call 508-693-3366.
