Meet the Author-Hidden History of Cleveland Sports
Book by Marc Bona. Cleveland sports history goes well beyond The Shot, The Fumble, The Drive and so many other ignoble moments. Many of the city's most illustrious sports tales are long-forgotten chapters of tribulations and tragedy, of fleeting fame and enduring milestones. There are forgotten firsts, such as football's first pass and the invention of baseball's slider having ties to Cleveland. From basketball to boxing, hockey to Heisman, journalist Marc Bona chronicles more than a century of unremembered tales. A features writer for cleveland.com and The Plain Dealer, Bona primarily covers food, restaurants, beer, wine, sports entertainment and sports history. Books will be available for sale and signing at this event.
