Description:
 This is the true story of Jack Graney, his bull terrier Larry, the Cleveland major league baseball team, and the pursuit of the pennant. He was a man of many firsts: leadoff batter, first man to face Red Sox pitcher Babe Ruth, first man to collect a hit off the Bambino, and first (and only) major league player to own a dog which was the official team mascot. Chicago author Barbara Gregorich tells his story, with slides, and will give a short reading from her book "Jack and Larry."
