Emmy Award-winner Mark Schubin will discuss the connection between the two beloved institutions on Saturday, Aug. 2 at The Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown at a 2014 Glimmerglass Festival event.

Schubin’s 90-minute presentation, entitled “Mark Schubin on Baseball and Opera,” is co-presented with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and will begin at 10 a.m. on Aug. 2. Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for youths and are available at www.glimmerglass.org.
