Zoom invitation & link
We are proud to kick off our 2021 SABR Southern Michigan book clubs with an award-winning book by one of our chapter board members. In the late 19th century, Adrian, Michigan, was home to a nationally-known team of African American All-Stars. Mitch Lutzke tells their nearly forgotten story in The Page Fence Giants: A History of Black Baseball’s Pioneering Champions (McFarland, 2018). In 2019 the book was named a Michigan Notable Book by the Library of Michigan.
Mitch will join us to talk about the process of writing the book and the legacy of this historic team.
