ST. PETERSBURG – As part of the Happy Hour with the Historian series, historian Jim Schnur will present a program on baseball Thursday, March 13, 6:30 p.m., at the St. Petersburg Museum of History, 335 Second Ave. NE.

As a part of the city of St. Petersburg's celebration of 100 years of Spring Training, Schnur will facilitate a lively discussion about St. Petersburg's favorite pastime.

Thanks to Al Lang, St. Petersburg's long and storied relationship with Major League Baseball dates back to 1914 when the St. Louis Browns played a full slate of exhibition games in the Sunshine City.

Schnur, the official historian for Pinellas County's Centennial Celebration in 2012, will tell this great baseball story along with other tales. Schnur is currently a special collections librarian at USFSP, a Florida history author and has served as President of the Pinellas County Historical Society.

The event features a full cocktail bar and a tasty sampling of baseball stadium fare by Hops & Props Café. Admission is a $5 suggested donation and includes viewing of Schrader's Little Cooperstown – a world record baseball collection.

Presented by RBC Wealth Management, Happy Hour with the Historian is offered six times a year at the museum.
