Event Description: Join Parade magazine and BackStory Events for a hilarious live interview with New York Times best-selling author Marty Appel as we talk about his new book, Casey Stengel: Baseball's Greatest Character. Hosted by Parade magazine and BackStory Events, this event is perfect for baseball fans as they join the studio audience for a once in a lifetime insider’s seat at this intimate conversation. Appel’s unique insight as a behind the scenes member of the Yankee’s organization sheds new light on Casey Stengel, an enigmatic, successful and hilarious player. A meet and greet and book signing will follow the interview. Space is limited! All ages welcome. Tickets for the live studio audience are available now at http://tickets.thecuttingroomnyc.com/event/1467482 For more than fifty years, Casey Stengel lived baseball, first as a player (he was the only person in history to play for all the New York teams--the Dodgers, Giants, Yankees, and Mets), and then as a manager (for the Yankees and Mets, among others). He made his biggest mark on the game, revolutionizing the role of manager while winning an astounding ten pennants and seven World Series Championships (including FIVE STRAIGHT!) with the Yankees. Playing with and against a Who's Who of Cooperstown--Babe Ruth, Christy Mathewson, Ty Cobb--and forming indelible, and sometimes complicated, relationships with Yogi Berra, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Billy Martin, Casey Stengel was, for an astonishing five decades, the undisputed, hilarious, and beloved face of baseball. For a man who spent so much of his life in the limelight, he still remains an enigma. New York Times bestselling author Marty Appel paints an intimate portrait of a private man who was larger than life and remains the embodiment of the national pastime. Appel was the youngest PR director in baseball history when George Steinbrenner elevated him to the New York Yankees post in 1973. He worked for the team for ten seasons, beginning in 1968, and followed it by producing its games on WPIX televis
