Virtual Author Series: Ralph Wimbish

Thursday, August 19, 2021 - 2:00pm

Our Virtual Author Series will feature the newest book from award-winning writer Ralph Wimbish. Heroes: Stories of Sports, Courage, and Class is a collection of stories from Wimbish’s 40-year career in sports journalism and includes entries on Jackie Robinson, Elston Howard, Bill White, and Buck O’Neil, whose careers will be discussed during the program.

Wimbish will also touch upon the legacy of his father, a St. Petersburg physician who led the fight to integrate spring training during the early 1960s.
