CANCELED - Brown Bag Lunch & Learn: How Iowa Met Baseball

Thursday, April 2, 2020

Historian John Liepa presents a fascinating and fun program about the myths regarding ‘the invention’ of baseball, the origins and evolution of the early game in the U.S., how the Civil War played a role in spreading the game, and much more. John brings to life some of the first Iowa players and does his presentation dressed as Iowa’s first major Leaguer, Cal McVey of Montrose, who played for the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings. John brings his extensive collection of memorabilia and cards for viewers to see before or after his presentation.
