MLB Network host and analyst Brian Kenny will discuss all things baseball and his acclaimed new book, Ahead of the Curve: Inside the Baseball Revolution at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center in Little Falls, N.J., on Sept. 27 at 7 p.m., followed by a booksigning.
One of the game’s most eloquent and passionate observers, Kenny uses stories from baseball’s present and past to examine why fans sometimes choose ignorance over information, and how tradition can trump logic, even when directly contradicted by evidence. His book frames the new way in which baseball insiders are thinking about the game, and why fans, journalists and organizations should embrace straightforward logic.
In Ahead of the Curve, Kenny talks about finding the next competitive advantage through statistical analysis, the merits of the current All-Star Game format, the importance of keeping pace of play moving, and more.
Kenny has been at MLB Network since 2011 and currently hosts “MLB Now,” a one-hour panel discussion that covers breaking news and the most recent trends in the game. He previously worked at ESPN, where he was an anchor of “SportsCenter” and “Baseball Tonight.”
Books are available for purchase at the Museum. To RSVP call (973) 655-2378.
