Did You Know? Legendary Lumber: The Top 100 Player Bats in Baseball History. A Conversation with Tom Zappala

Thursday, February 8, 2018

Tom Zappala is a businessman in the greater Boston area who is extremely proud of his Italian heritage and passionate about maintaining the traditions and historical significance of our National Pastime. His keen interest in baseball history inspired him to co-author the award-winning nonfiction books, The T206 Collection: The Players & Their Stories (IPPY Award 2010), The Cracker Jack Collection: Baseball’s Prized Players (Ben Franklin Award 2013), and The 100 Greatest Baseball Autographs (Peter E. Randall Publisher, 2016). He is actively involved in several Italian cultural organizations, and is also the co-host of a popular Italian-themed radio show in northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. He has recently authored a humorous look back at his years in Catholic Grammar School entitled Bless Me Sister. He loves spending time with his grandchildren and enjoys an occasional Grey Goose martini to accompany his soppressata and imported cheese.
