Literary Lorain Week: League Park, Historic Home of Cleveland Baseball

Batter up! The Lorain Historical Society is pleased to announce the schedule of events for the 2019 Literary Lorain program series, held April 8 through 11. With a hard-hitting lineup, this week of baseball-themed events is sure to hit a home run with audiences. Join us as we run all four bases with these events that celebrate historical stories of America’s National Pastime.

 

All Literary Lorain programs are $5 each, held at the Carnegie Center. Reservations are recommended. Call 440-245-2563 or email info@lorainhistory.org.

 

Bryan Fritz and Ken Krsolovic, authors of League Park: Historic Home of Cleveland Baseball, 1891-1946, will provide a visual and anecdotal history of legendary League Park, historic home of Cleveland baseball and the original home of the Indians. More than just baseball, the program ties together the politics, economics, and history of the city to the National Pastime. The ballpark was originally constructed in 1891, rebuilt in 1910, and still exists as an active venue to this day, complete with a museum of baseball history. Virtually every early baseball star played there, and it was the site of an inordinate number of the sport’s greatest moments.

 

Ken Krsolovic is a career college athletic director and administrator, with an accompanying career coaching college baseball. He has extensive experience as a play-by-play sports broadcaster. Bryan Fritz is the senior prosecutor for Cleveland. Also a noted sports statistician, he has additionally authored a book on the history of football at John Carroll University.
