Former Steeler Merril Hoge appearing at The Tiny Bookstore in Ross

Thursday, November 7, 2019 | 11:34 AM

Before hosting the 2019 Steelers Alumni Weekend Dinner at Heinz Field, Merril Hoge will be appearing at The Tiny Bookstore in Ross Township on Saturday, Nov. 9, from 1 to 3 p.m. Hoge will be at the store to promote his most recent book, “Brainwashed: The Bad Science Behind CTE and the Plot to Destroy Football.”

Although “Brainwashed” was released in October 2018, a recent public service announcement comparing youth tackle football to smoking cigarettes has brought renewed attention to the book.

The Tiny Bookstore is an independent micro-bookstore in Pines Plaza at 1130 Perry Highway in Ross.
