The Troy Public Library will host local author and sports writer, Dan Ewald on June 26, at 7 pm, to discuss his latest book, Sparky and Me, a memoir of Ewald's friendship with former Detroit Tigers' manager, Sparky Anderson.
Ewald met Anderson in 1979, while he was working as the Tigers public relations director. The two formed a lasting friendship that is not likely to be seen again in baseball history.
Ewald will provide an overview of his book, which captures the man that many baseball fans hail as a legend, and answer questions about Anderson and his time with the Tigers. He will also sign any books that people bring with them to the event.
