Join us at Wistariahurst for a look into the history of baseball in Western Massachustts!

Kevin Larkin has been going to baseball games since he was five years old. He is a baseball fan who loves the Yankees but loves to watch the sport no matter who is playing. He has authored/co-authored five books on baseball and writes articles for the Society of American Baseball research. He has presented all over Western Massachusetts about the sport he loves. His first book, Baseball in the Baystate is a history of the sport in the Commonwealth. Berkshire County’s Field of Dreams Part One and Part Two, is about the history of one of the country’s oldest ballparks, Wahconah park in Pittsfield.

Larkin will be talking about the history of baseball in Western Massachusetts, including players, teams and ballparks as well as members of the Hall of Fame from the area and black baseball in the area.
