HAL MCCOY INTRODUCES HIS MEMOIR

TUESDAY, MARCH 31; 7 PM
(Line numbers beginning at 6 pm. Please show your receipt for The Real McCoy to
get a line number.)

Dayton’s own legendary sportswriter HAL MCCOY will discuss his memoir The Real McCoy, My Half-Century with the Cincinnati Reds. He gives the fans an inside-the-dugout look at what never made the daily press: the politics, the personalities, the hi-jinks, the x-rated scenes –all the classic ballpark happenings known only to those on the field. In short, it’s the complete scoop from a sportswriter who led a charmed life and, even when faced with his own failing eyesight, managed to keep his life intact and still see more than the rest of us. The Real McCoy is one of the most readable –and revealing—books about baseball ever written. ORANGE FRAZER
