Sign up today.

During World War II, this campus and town buzzed with activity. Part of that electricity was generated by some of Major League Baseball’s brightest stars. Grab your bat and mitt and join the Cloudbuster Nine as we spin some memories provided by the likes of Ted Williams, Johnny Pesky and others while in the service of Uncle Sam. Plus we’ll have a visit from previous head baseball coach Mike Fox ’78 (’79 MAT) and current head baseball coach Scott Forbes, who’ll give us the skinny on Carolina Baseball today.

 

 

 

Lecturer: Freddie Kiger ’74 (’77 MAT)

Freddie Kiger ’74 (’77 MAT) leads our N.C. History Series. Freddie has partnered with the GAA since 1995 and brings more than 40 years of teaching experience to his lectures. He has a bachelor’s degree in history and a master of arts in teaching with an emphasis in history. Freddie’s career and passion has always included sports as well as teaching. The ESPN statistician and three-time Emmy Award winner is noted for his storytelling and does just that for two popular podcasts: The GAA’s Hark the Sounds podcast and Threads from the National Tapestry, a podcast covering the American Civil War.
