Author Visit with Devin Gordon

The Friends of The Field Library are honored to welcome journalist and Hendrick Hudson graduate Devin Gordon to The Field Library in Peekskill for an in-person appearance on July 20, 2021 to discuss his book on the N.Y. Mets, So Many Ways To Lose: The Amazin' True Story of the New York Mets - the Best Worst Team in Sports 

The Mets lose when they should win. They win when they should lose. And when it comes to being the worst, no team in sports has ever done it better than the Mets. In this hilarious history of the Mets and love letter to the art of disaster, Devin Gordon presents baseball the way it really is, not in the wistful sepia tones we've come to expect from other sportswriters. Along the way, he explains the difference between being bad and being gifted at losing, and why this distinction holds the key to understanding the true amazin’ magic of the New York Mets.
