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:

  • first time he heard about League Park
  • why were ballparks in this era built in neighborhoods
  • Ken's baseball background
  • coaching philosophies
  • importance of personal responsibility
  • process for writing the book and getting it published
  • who used the ballpark?
  • unique ballpark dimensions
  • city renovation and book release timing
  • what's happening at League Park today
  • favorite stories discovered when writing the book

For this episode, I had the pleasure of re-connecting with Coach Matt Kramer from Wilmington High School  Coach Kramer was on episodes 25-27 several years ago.

Coach Kramer is the co-author of the great book The Best-Laid Plans of a High School Basketball CEOwhich he wrote with legendary Ohio High School Basketball Coach Randy Montgomery (the book is temporarily out of print, but will be available again soon).  Coach Kramer wrote the book to document his journey and provide a resource for up and coming coaches.

Coach Kramer has had quite the coaching journey since we spoke last.  Coaching in Georgia, he coached elite D1 high school players and played at a national level.  He returned to Ohio and was named Wilmington coach in spring 2019.

To connect with the Outstanding Ohioans show, here are a few ways:

Here are the highlights from our conversation:

  • Go listen to Episodes 25-27 for previous conversations
  • Coaching experience running an elite national program in Georgia-big names, big games
  • Impact of the coronavirus on plans for his program and what he is focusing on right now
  • how his return to Ohio has reinvigorated his WHY
