The ROTARY CLUB OF NORRISTOWN welcomed New York Times sports writer, TYLER KEPNER for a noontime talk on his experiences in covering baseball for the last 18 years. Tyler, raised in the Philadelphia area, attended Vanderbilt University, and started on his sports writing path at in California and Seattle, before joining the staff at the Times covering the Mets, Yankees and other  Major League Baseball teams. He always kept an eye on the Phillies, who had given him an opening into a writing career. He was at the Times covering the Yankees when they defeated Philadelphia in the World Series. 
He has been working on a book, to be released in April, which details the history of baseball by concentrating on 10 pitches, interviewing several of the great pitchers of our time, and getting them to explain how they learned and perfected the pitches they would become famous for.
TYLER then spent time answering questions from attendees.
A very interesting talk, and our thanks to TYLER for coming.
