Frick* Baseball's Third Commissioner

Dr. John Carvalho, Associate Professor of Journalism, School of Communication and Journalism, Auburn University

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

Location:  Ground Floor Conference Room, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

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.
