Little Known Tales from Cleveland’s Glorious Baseball Past with Bob Zimmer, Joe Gazzo and Margaret Reardon

 

Bob Zimmer Bio

Bob Zimmer is the president and founder of the Baseball Heritage Museum. His vision of honoring the diverse history of baseball began during the 1997 All Star Game festivities as a one time exhibit on the Negro Leagues at his family jewelry store on East 4th Street. Twenty one years later, the vision is going strong from the Museum’s location in the former ticket office at historic League Park. Baseball history has much to be thankful for in Bob Zimmer.

Joe Gazzo Bio

Joe Gazzo is the Director of Education a the Baseball Heritage Museum and is involved in reaching out the community by teaching art and presenting programs. A picture by one of his students is now at The Smithsonian Institution! He also serves as a member of the Museum’s Board of Trustees.

Margaret Reardon Bio

Margaret Reardon has been the Administrator at the Museum since 2016. Her love of baseball began at the age of 10 when she questioned her father on why he only took her brother to Cleveland Indians games. She was reluctantly brought along for a Sunday doubleheader even though her brother pronounced “she’ll never last.” Not only did she last: she went to every weekend game with her dad until she left for college. Her love of baseball, as well as a good story, all things history, and Cleveland, make her feel qualified to present programs such as this one.

The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
