NORTH ANDOVER ––Ever dream of making it in the big leagues? In his new book, Lucas Mann details a year spent in hardscrabble dugouts, bars, and buses with players from the Lumber-Kings, an Iowa-based, Class A baseball team in the Seattle Mariners’ farm system.
Mann will read from “Class A: Baseball in the Middle of Everywhere” on Friday, Nov. 15 at 3 p.m. at Merrimack’s Writers House. The reading, which is free and open to the public, will be followed by a Q&A and reception.
