Tales from the Clubhouse

Hearing stories from those who lived in an era different from our own is fascinating. The tales are especially more interesting when they come from people we have looked on from afar, watched play a game with anticipation, or heard of them from lessons in history. Tales from the Clubhouse introduces us to meet the greatest baseball players from across this land.  These stories will indulge us in enriching messages that will make us smile, cause us to think, and help us relive the moments that made their stories memorable.

The clubhouse is the place where players would hang out before and after each game. There they would share in the stories that were worth repeating over again. In Tales from the Clubhouse, author and sports journalist, Lew Freedman remembers the glory days with players such as Hank Aaron, Ted Williams, Pete Rose, Randy Johnson, Ernie Banks, Jim Palmer, Wilbur Wood, Tony Perez, and Stan Musial to name a few. It will not only discuss their greatest plays, but also share in the stories that developed their baseball lives.

Travel back in history as we discover what made these moments memorable and worthy to be shared.
