We’ve hosted Hall of Famers and Pulitzer Prize winners. But never a 16-year-old author. Until now.
Matt Nadel’s first book -- Amazing Aaron to Zero Zippers -- is an A-to-Z compendium of the best players, ballparks, teams, and moments in the history of the game. Filled with stats and quick facts, and featuring over 50 iconic photographs, the book is a primer for baseball beginners, a resource for developing fans, and a treat for long-time devotees.

All of Matt’s book proceeds will be donated to the ALS, Turn 2, Jackie Robinson, and Hall of Fame foundations.

Matt would like to interview every living President and Hall of Famer. A 10th grader who resides in New Jersey, he aspires to be a baseball journalist and historian.
