Baseball in St. Lou: From Brownie Bits to Incredible Cardinals with Ed Wheatley
Saturday, September 29th, 1:30pm
A conversation with Ed Wheatley, co-author of “The St. Louis Browns – The Story Of A Beloved Team” the book that led to the EMMY nominated film on the team and his newest book “Incredible Cardinals”. Wheatley will be joined by Ed Mickelson, who played for both St. Louis teams, the Browns and Cardinals.
Converse with these two baseball enthusiasts as they walk through the history of the Browns and Cardinals from the turn of the twentieth century through today. The St. Louis Browns came to town in 1902 and were the darlings of St. Louis for two decades until the greatness of the Cardinals franchise took over. The Browns became baseball’s loveable losers while the Cardinals evolved into one of baseball’s great franchises. Wheatley’s stories and Mickelson’s recollections on the field bring back the memories of these two franchises for baseball fans of all ages to ensure this history will not be forgotten.
Copies of ‘The St. Louis Browns – The Story Of A Beloved Team’ are available for purchase at the IPHF gift shop for the signing.
