Cleveland History’s Center’s History on Tap Celebrates Local Sports Legends

Sat 4/13 @ 1-4PM

The Major League Baseball All-Star game returns to Cleveland this summer for the first time since 1997. That’s provided the theme for this month’s History on Tap at the Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society.

Material from their own collection will be on display, showing some of the memorable moments in Cleveland sports history, with various community partners presenting info on local baseball, basketball and football legends. Author Ruth Hanford Morhard talkabout the history of little league baseball in Cleveland, and sign copies of her new book, Mrs. Morhard and the Boys.

There’ll also be activities and presentations relating to Cleveland’s sports history, and Ohio City’s Bookhouse Brewery will be creating a special vintage draft for the occasion. They’re saying it’s to bring back memories of the Indians’ 10-cent beer nights but perhaps those are better lost in sands of time after the famous 10-cent beer night riot in 1974 which led to the game being forfeited. The beers will be $4 at History on Tap so don’t expect a riot. There’ll also be wine and cocktails available.

Admission is $15-$30.
