THE GOAT HILL MUSEUM STORE TO HOST BOOK EVENT

The Goat Hill Museum Store (located inside the historic Alabama State Capitol at the Union Street entrance) will host a book signing with Clarence Watkins, author of Baseball in Montgomery on Friday, February 24 from 11:00am-2:00pm.

This is the third book by Clarence Watkins, an author and Southern baseball historian, in Arcadia’s Images of Baseball series.

In 2004, Riverwalk Stadium ushered in a new era of professional baseball in Montgomery. After a more-than-20-year absence, the new ballpark became a catalyst for the revitalization of downtown Montgomery. Biscuit baseball and Riverwalk Stadium have given citizens something to be proud of.

Montgomery’s rich baseball history includes hall of fame players like Fred Clarke, Joe McGinnity, Casey Stengel, and Turkey Stearnes. There is also the forgotten history of an Alabama native, Roy “Goat” Walker, a fan favorite of Montgomery baseball for two generations.

Copies of Baseball in Montgomery will be available for purchase at the Goat Hill Museum Store.

For more information please call (334)353-4969 or find us on Facebook!

The store is operated by the Alabama Historical Commission, and all profits help continue efforts to preserve Alabama’s historic places.
