Residents and baseball fans are invited to meet Matthew Kastel, manager of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, and author of “The Manager’s Daughter,” will share stories about his lifetime of working behind the scenes in professional baseball and how this influenced his writing style and helped him develop characters for “The Manager's Daughter.” Three years ago, he wrote his first book, “Nine Inning Murder.”
The program will take place this Saturday, Nov. 7 at 10:30 am at the Germantown Library, 19840 Century Boulevard. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library, Germantown Chapter.
Kastel became the Maryland Stadium Authority’s manager of stadium operations at Oriole Park seven years ago. Prior to coming to Baltimore, he worked in the offices of the Auburn Astros, Maine Guides, Williamsport Bills, Vermont Mariners, Houston Astros and Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Following the program, the Friends of the Library - Germantown Chapter will sell the author's books. The author will autograph copies.
