A Great Night As Jerry Izenberg Spoke At A New York Giants Preservation Society Event

February 26, 2021

Last night, thanks to Gary Mintz and The New York Giants Preservation Society, I was able to thoroughly enjoy the legendary sportswriter and I believe national treasure, Jerry Izenberg regale the rather large “Zoom” audience, with great stories and information.


Mr. Izenberg talked specifically about Monte Irvin, with a great nod to his other “brother/tremendous man and player,” Larry Doby.  
On the 102nd anniversary of his birth, Irvin was remembered as a kind man, a friend to all, especially players who at one time, were on his side of the field. 

Next, a brief recap from Gary Mintz and a link to books by Mr. Izenberg. There will be much more here regarding Mr. Izenberg in the days ahead.

From Gary Mintz, The President of the New York Giants Preservation Society:

What a great evening last night as close to 60 NYGPS Members attended our Zoom meeting with legendary sports journalist Jerry Izenberg.  Jerry discussed his relationships with Monte Irvin (Who would have been 102 yesterday) and Larry Doby, as well as discussing his illustrious career. Jerry also discussed some of the books he has authored and here they are:


The masterful writer with a wealth of knowledge/great stories, Jerry Izenberg, is pictured above. His great recall, stories and vivid telling thereof were “front and center” at a great New York Giants Preservation Society event last night.
