Rachmones for the underdog?

Rachmones for the underdog?

Baseball has always had supreme rulers. The New York Yankees, with 27 world championships, are generally acknowledged as baseball’s most dynastic franchise, beginning with their rush to greatness in the early 1920s. Even teams more known for their ineptitude — the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs — once dominated the national pastime. But are baseball dynasties dead? 

A quartet of Jewish sportswriters will participate in “Reign Men,” a debate of baseball’s greatest dynasties, at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center on Sunday, May 22, at 2 p.m. The Museum is located on the campus of Montclair State University in Little Falls.

The panelists include:

• Howard Megdal, baseball journalist, editorial director of Excelle Sports, and author of The Baseball Talmud: The Definitive Position-by-Position Ranking of Baseball’s Chosen Players.

• Hal Bock, an Associated Press sportswriter for over 40 years and author of the newly published The Chicago Cubs’ Last Dynasty.

• Dan Schlossberg, one of the nation’s premier baseball experts and author of 38 books, including When the Braves Ruled the Diamond.

Baseball historian, author, and former Yankees PR director Marty Appel will moderate the discussion.

Admission is $6, $4 for students, and free for museum members. Each author’s most recent book will also be available for purchase. For more information, contact 973-655-6891 or david.yogi@montclair.edu.
