Meet Marty Appel

Meet Legendary Yankee P.R. Man Marty Appel at Foley’s on Weds, July 22

Meet legendary Yankee P.R. man and baseball historian Marty Appel, author of the acclaimed new biography MUNSON: The Life and Death of a Yankee Captain, at Foley’s New York Pub & Restaurant on Wednesday, July 22nd from 6 - 8 p.m.

Appel, who knew Thurman Munson during the team’s glorious “Bronx Zoo” years and co-wrote the catcher’s own autobiography, will talk about Munson’s great career, tragic death and enduring Yankee legacy.

Marty Appel will sign copies of his book and host a Q&A about his time with the Yankees and his friendships with greats, such as Munson, Murcer, and “The Mick.”

Foley’s is located across from the empire state building at 18 West 33rd St. and features thousands of autographed baseballs, hundreds of bobbleheads and game-used jerseys. It is also the home of the Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame, including 2009 honorees Paul O’Neill and Ed Lucas, a blind journalist who has covered the Bronx Bombers for 40 years.

With its great “pub grub,” large selection of beers, and friendly service, Foley’s is a favorite among baseball players, media and fans. You never know who you might meet at Foley’s!
