This offer is available exclusively at Left Bank Books on September 24 (all others must wait until September 25 to get the book!!!)
How do I get my books and ticket?
Go to Brown Paper Tickets and select the option you want—purchasing 1-3 copies of One Last Strike and receive one family-sized ticket. (up to two adults and two children)
Come to Left Bank Books at 10th and Locust September 24th and pick up your book(s)/ticket.
Book pickup begins at 10am at the Left Bank Books booth on Locust and Tenth.
How do I get my books autographed?
Group numbers will be issued on a first come-first served basis when you pick up your book(s). Group numbers are not event tickets. They are intended to allow you to enjoy the party until your group is called. When your group is called you will line up at the front door of Left Bank Books to meet Tony and get your book(s) autographed. (It works kind of like boarding an airplane). In the meantime, you can enjoy the music, browse the souvenirs, play games, sip a craft beer, have some lunch prepared by Bailey’s Range!
What will Tony Sign?
Tony La Russa, the best baseball manager ever, has graciously consented to sign and personalize up to three copies of his new memoir for you and to pose briefly for a professional photograph. He will be working non-stop for 5 hours (longer than a baseball game) to achieve this. That’s a long time to sign, but to get everyone’s book(s) signed, it is necessary to focus exclusively on One Last Strike. Let’s show Tony how much we love him and respect the rules!
Where can I park?
All downtown garages and pay lots, as well as metered parking, are open for business.
The 8th & Pine Metro station is two blocks from our store.
Save time and money - ride your bike to the event! Free, secure bicycle parking at the Downtown Bicycle Station will be provided via Urban Shark at 1009 Locust.
What if it rains?
Be happy for the farmers and bring your umbrella. There will be limited shelter available but, just like when you attend a Cardinals game, you will be outside most of the time. Dress for the weather!
There will be food, non-alcoholic beverages and beer available for purchase through Bailey’s Range at the street party on Locust. There are many other restaurants and coffee shops in the immediate area including Park Avenue Coffee, Local Harvest, Mosaic, and Pi Pizzeria if you want to grab something else.
Adequate number of porta-potties will be stationed at the party.
In the unlikely event that there is a medical emergency, Urgent Care clinic is one block away.
This event is wheelchair accessible.
