Steve Berry threw the publishing world a curve—or maybe a fastball—on September 7 when he tossed out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium. It was quite a night. In honor of his father, Harold Earl “Sam” Berry who played professional baseball in the late 1940s and early 1950s, Steve wore a Yankees’ jersey with the number 17, the number his dad wore during his playing years. His father was there, on the field, as was his brother, Bob Berry, who played baseball for Auburn University and his nephew, Grant Berry, who currently plays baseball for Columbus State College. And, most important, the pitch went right over the plate. A strike. Click here to see a video as it happened.
Steve Berry and his wife, Elizabeth, have traveled the world researching and promoting Steve’s many books. One comment they hear repeatedly concerns the dwindling supply of funds available to preserve our human heritage. So Steve and Elizabeth launched History Matters to assist communities around the world with historic restoration and preservation. Why? Because history really does matter. LEARN MORE
