Jay Jaffe | The Cooperstown Casebook

Join author Jay Jaffe for a reading and signing of his new sports book, The Cooperstown Casebook: Who's In the Baseball Hall of Fame, Who Should Be In, and Who Should Pack Their Plaques.  

Since The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum’s founding in 1936, the Hall of Fame’s standards for election have been nebulous, and its selection processes arcane, resulting in confusion among voters. Numerous so-called “greats” have been inducted despite having not been so great.

Here, Jay Jaffe shows us how to use his new ranking system to ensure the right players are recognized. Through his algorithm, each candidate can be objectively compared on the basis of career and peak value to the players at his position who are already in the Hall of Fame. Through his analysis, Jaffe shows why the Hall of Fame still matters and how it can remain relevant in the 21st century.

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of The Cooperstown Casebook from The King's English.
