Playing with Greatness: The Career of Vern Fuller

September 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
League Park, 6601 Lexington Ave
Cleveland, 44103
+ Google Map

This presentation will discuss the career of Vern Fuller during the tumultuous times of the 1960s - a decade of extremes, of transformational change and bizarre contrasts: flower children and assassins, idealism and alienation, rebellion and backlash. For many in the massive post-World War II baby boom generation, it was both the best of times and the worst of times. An argument can be made that America of the 1960s made Major League baseball, the bastion of tradition for over 60 years…

In honor of Veteran's Day.

By the war’s end more than 1,250 ballplayers, team owners, and sportswriters would serve, demonstrating that while the war…

Laura DeMarco: Cleveland Then and Now

December 9 @ 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…

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…
