This show brings the audience great things Ohioans are doing to make their communities, the state, the region, and the world a better place as entrepreneurs, leaders, historical and popular culture figures.
For episode 87, I had the privilege of interviewing Ken Krsolovic, co-author of the great book League Park, The Historic Home of Cleveland Baseball 1891-1946.
To connect with the Outstanding Ohioans show, here are a few ways:
I first heard of League Park when my grandma talked about seeing Babe Ruth play there when I was a kid. Odds are other kids born before 2000 in the Cleveland-area heard similar stories from grandparents. As a baseball fan, I love reading about and seeing pictures of these old stadiums, often nestled in neighborhoods with houses and small businesses all around.
Unlike many old stadiums, remnants of League Park remained after the Indians left. It was used as a practice facility for the Cleveland Browns and amateur baseball. The facility fell into a state of disrepair, until efforts were made to renovate the field, which re-opened in 2014.
Ken Krsolovic is the co-author of this great book. Ken grew up in Euclid and has been around the game of baseball his entire life. Here are some items we discussed:
