Baseball is America’s beloved national pastime. To serve our community, Gorton will celebrate this sport with a fantastic discussion among three well-known pros. Former Chicago Cubs player and National Baseball Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg, former Atlanta Braves owner Bill Bartholomay, and sports agent Alan Nero will share favorite stories from their long history with the game, and talk about everything from the impact of analytics to interleague play and the future of MLB! During the night other topics may be explored, such as how Major League Baseball can appeal to a younger audience, what legal sports betting will mean for the game, and the chances of international expansion to places such as Mexico and Europe.
