HISTORY PUB: Big League Baseball in Slabtown, August 31

HISTORY PUB: Big League Baseball in Slabtown, August 31

This month’s History Pub features former Portland Beavers’ star player Eddie Basinski and senior advisor Jack Cain.  Before Major League teams arrived from the East, the Portland Beavers were part of an equivalent organization called the Pacific Coast League. During the Beavers’ first 50 years, home field was at NW 24th and Vaughn streets and the team played against the likes of Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams. The team launched many boys like Johnny Pesky and Mickey Lolich into professional baseball careers. Come celebrate summer at this discussion of Portland’s early baseball era!
