Hal McCoy has written about the Cincinnati Reds since the inception of the Big Red Machine, and in an age in which most baseball beat writers rarely get to know the players personally, McCoy received rare access, highlighting the human side of America’s Pastime. McCoy’s new book, The Real McCoy: My Half-Century with the Cincinnati Reds, looks back to some of his favorite — and no so favorite — Reds via an idiosyncratic writing style he rode all the way to the baseball writers’ wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame. McCoy discusses the book at Joseph-Beth.


7 p.m. Thursday. Free. Joseph-Beth, 2692 Madison Road, Rookwood Pavilion, Norwood, josephbeth.com.
