Lunch & Learn at the Carnegie Center: “Baseball in a River Town,” presented by Justin Endres.


Justin Endres is going to be talking about the history of local baseball at lunchtime on Tuesday next week, and if you missed Justin at Pints&union in April, best RSVP the Carnegie Center immediately.

Lunch & Learn: Baseball in a River Town: From New Albany’s First Game to its First Superstar, presented by Justin Endres.
Tuesday, August 20, 2019 … Noon – 1:00 p.m.

Baseball, with its revered history of players, teams, and statistics, has early roots in Indiana. Justin Endres investigated the origins of the sport in the region. Learn about its local development, from the first pitch thrown on September 29, 1866 to New Albany’s first sports superstar, Jouett Meekin (son of the famous riverboat pilot James Meekin.) Lunch and Learn is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

Actually Justin’s appearance at the Carnegie is an encore performance. Previously he lectured there in April of 2016, and for all I know there may have been other times.

Tomorrow at the Carnegie: “Base Ball in a River Town: New Albany.”
