Spring is here, and with it comes baseball season and a few new events I hope you can be a part of!
Here is what's happening around MNBB:
- Monday, April 10. Rondo Library (461 N. Dale Street, St. Paul, MN). 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, May 10, Chanhassen Library, 6:30 p.m.
Another piece of history was recently installed, adding to the legacy of some of Minnesota's great African American athletes. A plaque at the Oxford Community Center / Jimmy Lee Recreation Center in St. Paul, MN went up recently documenting pieces of his life as a stand-out baseball player, golfer, columnist, and community advocate.
Lastly, if you haven't had a chance to check out the latest story on Dick Newberry, I recommend reading his story! Dick is a player that still has family in Minneapolis and surely deserves to be included in the Untold Stories of Minnesota Black Baseball. You can read the story here.
Happy baseball season! Wishing you well.
