The final years of League Park as a home to professional baseball included Bob Feller’s debut, the Cleveland “Crybabies” of 1940, the 56th game of Joe DiMaggio’s record hitting streak, and Lou Boudreau’s debut as the “Boy Manager” of the Indians, and the emergence of the Negro League Cleveland Buckeyes as 1945 Negro League World Champions. Baseball historian Morris Eckhouse will recollect those days and the forces that resulted in the end of professional baseball in Hough. The program begins promptly at 7 p.m.
