Pitch Talks Tomorrow in Pittsburgh

The Pitch Talks tour is making its Pittsburgh stop Thursday night at Club Cafe at 56 S 12th St., located on Pittsburgh’s south side.

I will be on the 8 p.m. baseball panel along with Pirates broadcast voice Joe Block, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Pirates beat writer Stephen Nesbitt, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Pirates beat writer Rob Biertempfel, and former Baseball Prospectus editor and present national writer John Perrotto. The club opens its doors at 5 p.m.

Since the local hockey team won its second straight Stanley Cup, there will also be a Pucks Talk panel that include hockey scribes Rob Rossi, Sean Gentille and Josh Yohe.

I cannot promise the Stanley Cup will be making an appearance, or that Sidney Crosby will be bringing his curveball.

Free tickets are also begin given away. To enter for a chance to win click here.

You should make the trip! We will do our best to entertain, provide insights and colorful stories from behind the scenes, from our experiences reporting on hockey and baseball. This will be my first panel, but I’ve heard great things about the event. I also plan to hang around afterwards if you would like to say hello.

I hope to see you there. Cheers.
