Lowell Spinners (short season A; NY-Penn League) Vice President Jon Goode turns author again, as he and the Boston Celtics’ Glen “Big Baby” Davis unveil a new children’s book.
Written by Goode and illustrated by current Boston College student Rachel Gregorio, Basketball with Big Baby stars the NBA power forward as himself as he spells out the word “BASKETBALL” with different adjectives he believes in when playing the game he loves.
“I am honored to have had the opportunity to write a second children’s book with “Big Baby” Davis of the Celtics,” said Goode, who previously authored “Pitching with the Papelbons” with Boston Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon. “Big Baby has been great to work with and we are both extremely excited to share this with parents and kids who are Celtics fans.”
Tomorrow night Goode and Davis will be hosting a fundraiser at Lowell Beer Works to benefit C2 Mission, a charitable foundation to benefit children and families affected by Cerebral Palsy and Cystic Fibrosis. Beginning at 6 p.m., with a $25 Donation you will receive admission into this private event as well as a copy of Basketball with Big Baby book for Davis to personally autograph. Other entertainment includes a silent auction, raffle and a Boston Celtics Trivia Challenge.
Space is limited and to reserve a spot on the guest list and a copy of the book please RSVP Jon Goode at (978) 805-5106 or by emailing email@example.com.
