Former B.U. baseball player Ken Jacobi was in Binghamton the last two days for the final stop of his summer book tour.
He fittingly threw out last night’s ceremonial first pitch and had a table at the Bmets game as one of five stops he made in Binghamton.
Jacobi’s book “Going with the Pitch: Adjusting to Baseball,School, and Life as a Division I College Athlete” has sold about 750 copies thus far.
Ken Jacobi says, “I just thought it was a great story to tell. It wasn’t a remarkable or exceptional story, it was just a very common story that a lot of people go through at college about playing sports and balancing school and a social life and athletics. I thought my struggles and overcoming some obstacles would help other people and other student athletes to do it better when it’s their turn to do it.”
Jacobi thought it would be fitting to end his book tour where the story began.

Former BU Baseballer Publishes Book

We cover their games, you cheer them on, and they repay us by giving it their all on the field.
College athletes are often the face of their universities, but there is much more to what they do besides the action on the field.
Former Binghamton University baseball player Ken Jacobi details those behind the scenes accounts in his book ‘Going With The Pitch.’
In his first publication, Jacobi describes what life is like for a college athlete from getting recruited up through graduation, and the highs and lows along the way.
“You’ve got to be ready to adjust and have some failures. Everyone comes to a program, whether it’s Division I, II, or III after being a superstar in high school, and you come here, and you’re not. You have to learn to adjust to, maybe, hitting curve balls or studying a little bit extra and the book really tackles going in to the academics, going in to the mechanics and the mental approach and it all comes together in this book,” Jacobi said.
The book is available on Amazon.com and is also available for the Nook and the Kindle.
