Seasonal Special Happenings

Integrating Baseball

When: Wed., April 22 2015

A number of significant shifts in the movement toward integrating baseball took place in Cleveland. The Cleveland Buckeyes were the first Negro League team to integrate in 1946 and Larry Doby joined the Cleveland Indians and integrated the American League just weeks after Jackie Robinson did the same for the National League. Tonight at 7 at the Maltz Museum, Stephanie Liscio, author of It’s Pronounced Lajaway and president of the Cleveland chapter of the Society of American Baseball Research, will talk about these historic events. Admission is $12, $10 Maltz Museum Member
