Signing w/ All-Star Pitcher JOHN SMOLTZ

We are so pleased to present a signing with local boy and All-Star pitcher John Smoltz, a graduate of Lansing’s Waverly High School! Former Detroit Tiger Smoltz was one of the greatest Major League pitchers of the late twentieth/early twenty-first century—one of only two in baseball history ever to achieve twenty wins and fifty saves in single seasons—and now he shares the candid, no-holds-barred story of his life, his career, and the game he loves in Starting and Closing. A Cy Young Award-winner, future Baseball Hall of Famer, and currently a broadcaster for his former team, the Atlanta Braves, Smoltz delivers a powerful memoir with the kind of fascinating insight into game that made Moneyball a runaway bestseller, plus a heartfelt and truly inspiring faith and religious conviction, similar to what illuminates each page of Tim Tebow’s smash hit memoir, Through My Eyes.

This will be a ticketed event, with tickets available at our Eastwood Towne Center location when the store opens on Monday, May 21. Tickets are available free with purchase of Starting and Closing. Mr. Smoltz will not be signing memorabilia. Photography will be permitted. Tickets may be reserved over the phone by calling the store at 517.316.7495. Those who have already purchased a copy through Schuler Books need only show their receipt to obtain tickets.
