Media Advisory: Baseball Hall of Famer Rod Carew Book Signing on Saturday, July 31
Baseball Hall of Famer Rod Carew will be at Costco in the Laguna Niguel Marketplace on Saturday, July 31st to sign copies of his recently updated autobiography, Carew. The two-hour long signing begins at 12:00 PM.
First published in 1979, this new edition has a foreword by All-Star center fielder Torii Hunter and a new afterword by Carew covering the end of his baseball career and his post-baseball life—notably his induction into the Hall of Fame and his years as a hitting instructor.
When Rod Carew retired in 1985, following twelve seasons with the Minnesota Twins and seven with the California Angels, he had amassed seven batting titles, more than three thousand hits, and eighteen All-Star selections and was considered one of the best pure hitters to ever play the game. While his baseball career is well documented, this compelling chronicle of Carew’s life extends far beyond the baseball diamond. Carew is a forthright and fascinating account, revealing the public and private stories that illuminate one of baseball’s greatest and most respected players.
Rod remains active in baseball serving The Office of the Commissioner of Major League Baseball as Special Advisor for International Player Development. Rod also serves on the executive staff of the Minnesota Twins and remains active with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. In addition, he is a founding partner and chairman of Rod Carew Baseball (www.rodcarewbaseball.com), a new company which is committed to being the premier baseball/softball company dedicated to the art and science of hitting.
