This past Wednesday (11/8), the NYGPS conducted its final meeting of the calendar year with the author of 1921:The Yankees, the Giants, and the Battle for Baseball Supremacy in New York Steve Steinberg. Steinberg spoke of the battle between the kings of NY baseball with emphasis on two of the series main combatants and characters, John McGraw and Babe Ruth. A great Q/A then took place. Thanks to Steve and Jay Goldberg, owner of the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, for a wonderful and informative evening!!!
