‘Orioles Encyclopedia’ author at Barnes & Noble Johns Hopkins

From Bobo to Zupo, the JHU Press’ new Orioles Encyclopedia: A Half Century of History and Highlights profiles nearly 400 Baltimore Orioles players and includes the results of every game since 1954, short features on managers and coaches, and hundreds of photographs.

At 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 27, Mike Gesker, author of the exhaustive, 896-page guide ($55), will sign copies of his book at Barnes & Noble Johns Hopkins.

Gesker won an Emmy for Baseball, the Birds on 33rd, a program he produced, directed and wrote for Maryland Public Television.
