My Hall of Fame Book Signing!!!! 8/23/15

Hey baseball fans!

Yesterday, August 22, 2015, I actually did a book signing at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York (click on link here)!! It was hosted in the Bullpen Theater on the first floor of the Hall where I answered questions about my blogging career and my book, Amazing Aaron to Zero Zippers.  According to the Hall, they believe that I am the youngest author ever to do a book signing there. So I really appreciate them asking me to come.  Here are some pictures from the event.

I really wanted to again thank the Hall of Fame for allowing me to come and sign books, Bruce Markusen at the HOF for conducting the signing, and everyone in attendance who heard me answer questions or who got a book signed. I also would like to thank Jeff Idelson (the HOF President), Brad Horn, Craig Muder and Drew Taylor for all of their support always. It was such a fun time and I am so honored to have spoken in Cooperstown.

Lastly, I wanted to give a special shoutout to one of my dad's oldest friends, Allan Filler, his wife, Rochelle, and their daughter, Claire, for making a special trip and coming to the signing and also for joining me for lunch at the famous Cooperstown Diner.  Here's a nice picture of them, as well as one of the diner where we ate (which is a fun place to check out, if you're ever in Cooperstown).

Thanks to everyone who has bought my book already and I hope you've enjoyed it. So far I have sold about 4,000 copies and, since I am giving all my proceeds to four charities, including the Hall, yesterday, I gave Craig Muder a donation check for $470. I hope there's a lot more checks in the future.

Check back soon on Baseball with Matt for more of "all the buzz on what wuzz."
