Cleveland Indians curator Jeremy Feador will talk Tribe history on Thursday at Happy Dog
The Cleveland Indians official baseball historian, Jeremy Feador, will talk about the birth of professional baseball in Cleveland tomorrow night starting at 7PM at Happy Dog on 5801 Detroit Ave.
A little background on what Jeremy will be discussing via Happy Dog’s Facebook event: The Forest Citys were Cleveland’s first attempt at an organized baseball club. They were formed in 1865, shortly after the Civil War ended, as an amateur club. They slowly picked up steam and began playing players in the late 1860’s, including 2013 Baseball Hall of Famer, Deacon White.
By 1871, they had joined the National Association as a professional club, and played in the very first Major League game ever played, only to fold during the 1872 season. The talk will highlight significant members, events and games in the club’s history.
Be sure to head to Happy Dog tomorrow night to hear Jeremy’s presentation on a bit of our history!
