We’ve hosted Hall of Famers and Pulitzer Prize winners. But never a 16-year-old author. Until now.
Matt Nadel’s first book is an A-to-Z compendium of the best players, ballparks, teams, and moments in the history of the game. Filled with stats and quick facts, and featuring over 50 iconic photographs, the book is a primer for baseball beginners, a resource for developing fans, and a treat for long-time devotees. Special bonus: a foreword by Hall of Famer Jim Palmer.
Matt Nadel, age 16, has written an MLB.com Pro Blog since he was 13-years-old. He’s interviewed Yogi Berra, Hank Aaron, Bud Selig, Rob Manfred, Billy Crystal, President George W. Bush and many others. Matt would like to interview every living President and Hall of Famer. A 10th grader who resides in New Jersey, he aspires to be a baseball journalist and historian. When not doing baseball research or working on his blog, Matt enjoys watching his beloved Yankees, playing video games, and eating chocolate ice cream with rice krispies.
Join Matt Nadel on March 26th in the Clubhouse for his first book event. RSVP required to attend.
Autographed and personalized copies of “Amazing Aaron to Zero Zippers: An Introduction to Baseball History” will be available for purchase. All of Matt’s book proceeds will be donated to the ALS, Turn 2, Jackie Robinson, and Hall of Fame foundations.
