Martha's Vineyard Sharks Game with Alan Dershowitz

Today, August 6, 2013, I joined Vineyard Haven maven Alan Dershowitz (in uniform above) for our Red Barber and Mel Allen annual redux, calling the telecast of the crucial game at the Shark's Tank which broke the first place tie existing between the slashing Martha's Vineyard Sharks and the Nashua Silver Knights, who succumbed 3-1. We colorfully described the baring of teeth and blood in the water on MV PBS, archived at www.mvsharks.com. We a few guests talked about issues in the greater world too, as well as Alan’s autobiography coming out in October, Taking the Stand, My Life in the Law, and my recently published oral history, American Jews and America’s Game: Voices of a Growing Legacy in Baseball. Alan graciously presented me with an inscribed advance copy of his book. PLAY BALL!
