Appearing on The Fort Report

Appearing on The Fort Report with Kevin Leininger at 5:30 p.m. Saturday on Comcast Channel 57 and FiOS Channel 27 and later Sunday AM at www.news-sentinel.com. He only tried to trip me up a couple of times, but I'm pretty slow on my feet so I didn't lose much momentum.

Just finished watching your interview with Levin about your new Fort Wayne Sports book. Sounds very interesting.


Several years ago I heard a gentlemen down here in the DFW area talking about baseball trivia. One spring, before the end of Spring training, KRLD Radio 1080, had one of their sports guys do a short 30 sec.-1 min. spot on baseball trivia: He mentioned that Ft. Wayne was the site of the first Night Professional baseball game played under the lights. A team called the Ft. Wayne Kekionga's?


Was this included in your book?


Take care,


All the best!!

Yes, David, that story is in the book, but with some clarifications. LOL. It wasn't the Kekiongas and it also wasn't the first night baseball game. It was the first night baseball game involving a pro team. May 4, 1871.
