Baseball: Shadow Ball
A Celebration of the Negro Leagues with Tom Grandy is will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Baseball’s Negro Leagues.
Mr. Grandy coaches the Saint John’s Prep’s varsity baseball team and was fortunate enough to be able to take a group of students to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, MO in the fall of 2012.
Mr. Grandy will share a presentation and you will have the opportunity to hear from students and participate in a question and answer session. We hope to discuss the history of baseball, as well as some of the inequities present in American professional sports and our world today.
