Take Me Out to the Ball Game
Now that the World Series is over, are you or your partner missing baseball already? Do you still believe baseball was invented just down the road in Cooperstown? Did you ever wonder how a cricket match can take five days to complete? Even a casual baseball or sports fan is sure to love our co-coordinator Lisa Brown's presentation of "Did Jane Austen Invent Baseball: The Early History of Bat and Ball Games in the U.S. and England." Lisa will talk about the origins of baseball, cricket and what Jane's got to do with it on Saturday, November 16th at 1:00 pm in the Barnes & Noble in Pittsford, a suburb of Rochester.
