Cleveland Indians and Baseball in the Great Depression

When: Sat., May 6 2017

Part of baseball’s appeal is that the sport itself acts as a sort of history, with great players marking periods of time and eras of play. It’s also a sport that has endured very little changes over more than a century. No Money, No Beer, No Pennants, by local author Scott Longert, presents a historical account of the Indians franchise throughout the unrest of the Great Depression. Longert’s book has enough deep research to satisfy hardcore baseball fans while also including enough photography and anecdotes to please any general fans of the sport. Tonight at 7:00 p.m., Longert will give a talk on his book and the history of the Tribe. The reading, which includes a book sale and signing, takes place at the Brook Park branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Libraries system. (Johnny Cook)
