Meet Legendary Baseball Player Keith Hernandez at LIC Book Signing Next Week

May 29, 2018 By Nathaly Pesantez

Keith Hernandez, the former MLB first baseman and current analyst, will be in Long Island City next week to sign copies of his newly released book.

The ticketed book signing will take place on June 8 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Book Culture LIC, located at 26-09 Jackson Ave.

Hernandez will sign copies of his memoir, “I’m Keith Hernandez”, described as a “tell all” book that traces his rise from a young Little League player in Northern California to his MLB career with the St. Louis Cardinals and the New York Mets from the 70s to late 80s.

Hernandez, who earned eleven consecutive Golden Gloves, an MVP award, and helped the Cardinals and Mets win World Series titles, also delves into the status of baseball in the present and the future in his new memoir.

The former first baseman has worked in television since 2000, serving as a broadcaster for Mets games and a studio analyst for MLB on Fox.

Tickets for the book signing are available on Brown Paper Tickets for $28, and include a copy of the book. No photos are allowed with the author, as well as personalized signatures.

So what’s the point of paying $28 – not even a selfie?
And the hours between 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm? What a washed up former Major League star – book signing taking place at a book store I never heard of in LIC. He came across as a cocky a-hole then and appears to be the same now with his pronouncements on air when calling games. Lenny Dykstra with all his issues on and off the field Post Major League career is more interesting, roid head and would draw more people than Keith “Snort the White Powder” Hernandez.

He’s not washed up – he’s retired – there’s a difference. And if you don’t like him, don’t go to his book signing – it’s just that easy. Have a lovely day!

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.

Ike Ford, 19, of 12th Street, in Long Island City, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder.
