The Happy Dog says
The Cleveland Indians offical baseball historian, Jeremy Feador, will talk about the birth of professional baseball in Cleveland. The Forest Citys were Cleveland's first attempt at an organized baseball club. They were formed in 1865, shortly after the Civil Warended, as an amatuer club. They slowly picked up steam and began playing players in the late 1860's, including 2013 Baseball Hall of Famer, Deacon White.

By 1871, they had joined the National Assocaition as a professional club and played in the very first Major League game ever played, only to fold during the 1872 season. The talk will highlight significant members, events and games in the club's history.
