Date and Time: Tuesday, February 21 at 3 p.m.

Ford Frick is best known as the baseball commissioner who put the "asterisk" next to Roger Maris's record. But his term as commissioner carried the game through pivotal changes - television, continued integration, West Coast expansion, and labor unrest.
Carvalho's biography of Frick provides a detailed narrative of his career and the events and characters of mid-twentieth century baseball.
