 This is the true story of Jack Graney, his bull terrier Larry, the Cleveland major league baseball team, and the pursuit of the pennant. Jack Graney 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 leaguer player
to own a dog which was the official team mascot. This is a story of devotion, commitment, and persistence, illustrating what it means to be major league. This slide presentation is given by author Barbara Gregorich who will also briefly read from her book, "Jack and Larry".
