SNY’s GARY COHEN RETURNS FOR
2019 RIDGEFIELD LIBRARY HOT STOVE LEAGUE CONVERSATION
Legendary New York Mets Announcer
Previews Upcoming Season with Mets Fans on Saturday January 26
Award-winning New York Mets play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen returns to the Ridgefield Library on January 26 for the Library’s 2019 installment of its popular Hot Stove League program.
Gary will entertain questions from the audience, share anecdotes from his 30 years broadcasting the Mets and provide his take on the upcoming Major League Baseball season. He was recently inducted to the New York State Baseball Hall of Fame alongside his broadcasting partner and former Mets player Keith Hernandez. The Hot Stove League event sold out quickly when Gary last appeared at the Library during the 2017 off-season.
All proceeds from this fundraiser support the annual operations of the Ridgefield Library.
