Baseball in St. Louis is the story that tells the history of St. Louis as a baseball town through and through. It’s the story of young children playing in farm fields, school yards and brick alleys. It’s the story of kids playing in the region’s little leagues, high schools and colleges. It’s the story of men who made it to the major leagues from St. Louis and those of all ages who play simply for the love of the game. This is the story of St. Louis baseball, its impact on the community, those who played, and those who watched. It’s the story of St. Louis baseball from the little leagues to the Major Leagues.
Ed Wheatley grew up in and around the world of baseball and continues to play in senior leagues across the
country. As the leader of the St. Louis Browns Historical Society & Fan Club, he works to preserve the history and

country and has twice had the privilege of speaking at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. Ed is the co-author of St. Louis Browns: The Story of a Beloved Team and Incredible Cardinals, and has been a producer of two award winning St. Louis Browns documentaries that aired on PBS.
