A tour of an old newspaper facility and a talk with a couple of old baseball writers. Like there could be a better way to spend an afternoon. I did mention they were old baseball writers?

It’s coming your way Thursday, April 19, at noon.

It’s part of a monthly program at The Times, Thursdays @ The Globe, that includes a mini-tour of the newspaper and an opportunity to interact with reporters, columnists, editors and executives.

This time out the The Times offers columnist Bill Plaschke and national baseball writer Bill Shaikin. The two will discuss the Dodgers and baseball in the hourlong, meet-and-greet session. No one is required to bring Geritol.

The program is named after the historic Globe Lobby, the beautiful entrance to The Times that features 10-foot high murals painted in 1935 by Hugo Ballin, who also painted the Griffith Observatory rotunda.

Reservations for the free program can be made here.
