Larry's Legacy

When: Wed., July 29 2015

Larry Doby was the first African-American to play in the majors for the American League. He made his debut in 1947 in Cleveland a mere three months after Jackie Robinson made his National League debut. Larry Doby, Jr. and Jim “Mudcat” Grant, who played for the 1954 Indians and was Doby’s roommate will be on hand tonight to talk about the man's accomplishments. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage. Tickets are $12, $6 for members and program includes admission to the current exhibit, Chasing Dreams: Baseball & Becoming American. (Niesel)
