Kevin Cowherd - When the Crowd Didn't Roar: How Baseball's Strangest Game Ever Gave a Broken City Hope — in conversation with Dan Rodricks

Upcoming Event
Saturday, May 4, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

When Freddie Gray died in police custody on April 19, 2015, Baltimore erupted in the worst rioting since Martin Luther King Jr.’s shooting. Nonetheless, the Baltimore Orioles played the Chicago White Sox in Camden Yards on April 29, as scheduled. The bleachers were empty; the game took place in an eerie silence that fittingly marked the city’s shock. Cowherd, a longtime Baltimore Sun features and sports writer and the author of nonfiction and fiction for adults and young adults, vividly conveys this unforgettable day through the eyes of those in the stadium as well as through the experiences of activists, the media, and Baltimore officials. Cowherd will be in conversation with Dan Rodricks, metro columnist for The Baltimore Sun.
