Event description

Description

Baseball in the 1920’s is most known for Babe Ruth and the New York Yankees, but there was another great Yankees player in that era whose compelling story remains untold.


Urban Shocker was a fiercely competitive and colorful pitcher. With the 1927 Yankees, widely viewed to be the best team in Major League Baseball history, Shocker pitched with guts and guile, finishing with a record of 18‑6 even while his fastball and physical skills were deserting him. Hardly anyone knew that Shocker was suffering from incurable heart disease that left him able to sleep only while sitting up and which would take his life in less than a year.

Delving into his baseball career, his love of the game, and his battle with heart disease, Steinberg shows the dominant and courageous force of Urban Shocker.

Join Steve Steinberg for our intimate Clubhouse conversation on Thursday, June 1.

Steve Steinberg is a baseball historian and coauthor with Lyle Spatz of The Colonel and Hug: The Partnership that Transformed the New York Yankees, and 1921: The Yankees, the Giants, and the Battle for Baseball Supremacy in New York.
