Tuesday April 14 | Baseball’s Doc Graham

April 13, 2009 at 11:27 am | Posted in Coming Up | Leave a comment

A conversation about Doc Graham, Archibald “Moonlight” Graham, who was fictionally portrayed in the 1989 film Field of Dreams. We’ll learn about the real life of Doc Graham, who studied to be a doctor while playing minor league baseball (for a few years with the Charlotte Hornets), his brief stint in the big leagues, and his eventual exit from the sport to be a doctor full time- where he did pioneering research on children’s blood pressure that is still being used today.
