Katya Cengel: "Bluegrass Baseball: A Year in the Minor League Life" 

When: Thu., Sept. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2012

A trainer feeds his players on $40 a day, a Cuban defector perfects a 100-mph fastball, and the wacky front office staff engages in hijinks -- this is just everyday life for minor league players hoping to make it to the Big League. It's also the subject of KatyaCengel'sBluegrass Baseball: A Year in the Minor League Life, which follows four baseball teams in 2010, starting in Lexington, Kentucky, with the annual tryouts for national anthem singers and continuing through the season with decidedly unglamorous player and fan drama. In Kentucky, baseball is still about the game, not the increasingly outrageous player antics that have come to characterize major league baseball. Hear all about it on Thursday, Sept. 13, at Pegasus Downtown (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley). 7:30 pm, free. 510-649-1320 or PegasusBookstore.com
