Author, historian and Cleveland Indians fan Scott Longert is guiding us through the history of his beloved Tribe.
He’s written books about:
- Addie Joss—a contemporary of Cy Young who was such a dominant pitcher that they changed the Hall of Fame’s rules to induct him.
- the 1920s Indians who won the team’s first World Series.
- and the Depression-era Indians in No Money, No Beer, No Pennants.
Now, he’ll discuss the Cleveland Indians from 1937 through the beginning of World War II during a special program at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 9, at our main Branch.
Longert will describe the Indians’ pennant race in 1940 and talk about how WWII changed baseball, the fate of the Indians, and life of one Bob Feller.
This program is free to attend and open to all. We only ask that you register to attend. You can sign up online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.
