Stokes Hough and Baseball

August 12 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Baseball in Cleveland, at the amateur and professional levels, was in flux during the mid-1960s.  Cleveland had been the “Sandlot Capital of the World”, but amateur baseball participation was declining and challenged by economic changes and new entertainment options.  The Cleveland Indians were also coping with changes at the professional level after great success in the late 1940s and through the 1950s.  These challenges mirrored the challenges faced by the City of Cleveland and new mayor Carl Stokes.  Our event will feature a panel of participants in Cleveland amateur baseball in 1967 including Russ Schneider, Frank Petruno, Gary Oring and Nobby Lewandowski.
