EBBA 40 Years Of Baseball

LondonOntarioSports.com Publisher & Editor Jeffrey Reed visits with David McCord, London Public Library’s coordinator of collections management, who accepted additional copies of EBBA 40 Years of Baseball.

EBBA 40 Years of Baseball (1994), written by LondonOntarioSports.com Publisher & Editor Jeffrey Reed, was London’s first baseball history book. Did you know that the Eager Beaver Baseball Association was one of Canada’s first organized minor sports groups, and the original minor sports association in London? Take a trip down memory lane – back to the early-1950s when a dedicated group of Londoners passionate about baseball put their blood, sweat and tears into forming EBBA.

This 67-page book, bursting with photos chronicling London’s baseball history, is not only about EBBA: it’s really about London from 1955 to 1994 – EBBA’s 40th season. You’ll read about how EBBA founder Gordon Berryhill befriended both Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb; how London’s own George “Mooney” Gibson lent his support to EBBA; and how Baseball Hall of Fame member Fergie Jenkins proudly donated his time to supporting local baseball.
