Spring has finally arrived in Northeast Ohio! Along with sunshine and warm weather, sports fans are also enjoying some great baseball. Listening to a rare weekday afternoon game during my lunch break got me thinking about the Great American pastime here in Cleveland. Sure it’s been a while since we’ve won a World Series (1948), but we will always be able to claim great Cy Young as a hometown hero. The Cleveland Spiders are long gone, as is the stadium at League Park, but Young’s legacy lives on with a pitching award that bares his name. Cy Young still holds the record for most career wins (511) in all of Major League Baseball. If you are interested in more Cleveland Indians history, head on in to the library!
Maybe you’re looking for a fiction book about baseball. No problem! We have those too.
In the mood for a baseball movie? You’ll want to look for these:
This is just a small sampling of all the baseball goodies you’ll find at the library.
