Columbus ophthalmologist Doug Wilson will chat about his latest book entitled The Bird: The Life and Legacy of Mark Fidrych which covers one of the most unique and beloved players in baseball history. Fidrych was not only a great pitcher, he did the field maintenance with his hands, shook hands with umpires and cops after games, and talked to the ball. Baseball had never seen anything like him–and never has since. Fidrych pitched his entire career for the Detroit Tigers and was the 1976 rookie of the year in the American League.
