The Irish played a significant role in baseball from the very beginning. Baseball was an important avenue for Irish assimilation into American life.

This talk was originally presented at the Hall of Fame at the 2013 Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture.

Professor Pioreck teaches creative writing and literature at Hofstra where he created the Baseball and American Literature course. At this year’s Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture, he presented what he discovered writing the play Say It Ain’t So, Joe, about Joe Jackson and the 1919 World Series scandal. Well studied in baseball and well seasoned in the theater, Professor Pioreck will make baseball fanatics and anyone interested in a good show well pleased. Come early. The society expects a World Series game-sized crowd.
