Laura DeMarco: Cleveland Then and Now

December 8 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Cleveland has suffered highs and lows over the last two hundred years. The city became wealthy in the industrial age, financing grand civic buildings and funding the mansions on Millionaires' Row. Industry declined post-war, reaching its nadir when the polluted Cuyahoga River was set ablaze in 1969. It was a turning point. Today, downtown has been being revitalized, the city is home to the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame and “Burning River” is the name of a popular local beer, not…

Baseball Book Club: Jack and Larry- Jack Graney and Larry, the Cleveland Baseball Dog

January 26, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Jack and Larry is the heartwarming story of a man, a dog, and a baseball team. Leadoff batter for the Cleveland American League team from 1910-22, Jack Graney was loved for many reasons, not least among them the fact that he owned Larry, bull terrier mascot of the woebegone, 102-losses, 48-games-out team that struggled to prove itself worthy. Larry, too, was loved, not only by the Cleveland fans, but by porters, bellhops, ship captains and trolly car conductors in all American…

Black Baseball Chronology

February 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In honor of Black History Month. This presentation takes a look at the involvement of African Americans and other people of color in American baseball. While there is evidence of inclusion during the early days of organized baseball (mid-19th Century); racial segregation became the norm near the turn of the century in what was referred to as a ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ excluding Black players from the highest levels of the game.  Re-integration of the national pastime occurred in 1947 when Jackie…

February 16, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

  This presentation will discuss the annual assembly of the best Black and Latino baseball players, who were the equals of their White counterparts in Major League baseball.  The East-West All-Star Classics ranked among Black America’s favorite sporting events attracting tens of thousands of fans each season.  Most games were held at Chicago’s Comiskey Park; but New York City, Washington, DC and Cleveland, Ohio also hosted the contests sometimes in a given season as a second All-Star game. Presenter: Isaac…

February 23, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

In Beep, David Wanczyk illuminates the sport of blind baseball to show us a remarkable version of America’s pastime. With balls tricked out to beep three times per second like a troubling EKG and with bases that buzz, beep baseball is both innovative and intensely competitive. And when the best beep baseball team in America, the Austin Blackhawks, takes on its international rival, Taiwan Homerun, no one’s thinking about disability. What we find are athletes playing their hearts out for a championship.…

League Park, 6601 Lexington Ave
Cleveland, 44103
+ Google Map

The United States entered World War One 102 years ago today. Baseball, like the rest of the country, changed dramatically when the United States entered World War I, and Jim Leeke brings these changes to life in From the Dugouts to the Trenches. He deftly describes how the war obliterated big league clubs and largely dismantled the Minor Leagues, as many prominent players joined the military and went overseas. By the war’s end more than 1,250 ballplayers, team owners, and sportswriters would…
