Eddie Plank: Gettysburg Legendary Lefty

Local writer, James Rada Jr., returns to the GAR Hall to tell us about Edward Stewart Plank, Gettysburg's native and local baseball hero who eventually was inducted into the 1946 Baseball Hall of Fame. Born August 31, 1875 on a farm north of Gettysburg, Plank with his brothers and friends played baseball in its early stages as spring-summer pastimes. Even though he was not attending Gettysburg College he did play with the college baseball team in 1900 to 1901. What transpired in 1901 and what was so unique about Eddie Plank? Learn the answers to these questions and more at the event.

Doors open at 7 pm, and the free programs begin at 7:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served before and after the program. No reservations required.
