Salem State University’s popular public lecture series, which this year celebrates 30 years of bringing nationally and internationally recognized statesmen and –women, sports legends, best-selling authors, researchers, adventurers, and others to its North Shore campus, is please to present Bobby Valentine and Peter Gammons on Thursday, November 8, 2012 at 8 pm.


Bobby Valentine, who replaced longtime manager Terry Francona in December 2011, is the storied team’s 45th manager. When his own playing days ended, Valentine distinguished himself as a manager, leading the New York Mets to a 97–66 record and a wild card playoff berth in 1999. The baseball guru eventually turned his sights to sports journalism, making his broadcast debut as a baseball analyst for ESPN during the 2009 American and National League Championship Series and World Series.


Valentine will be joined on stage by noted sportswriter and baseball journalist Peter Gammons, a three-time recipient of the National Sportswriter of the Year Award, voted annually by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.
