CLEVELAND, Ohio — A trio of sportsbook authors — Vince Guerrieri, Jim Sulecki and Joseph Wancho — are set to host a speaking and signing event at the Baseball Heritage Museum on Saturday, November 12.

The authors will be at the museum from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Each author will have a presentation followed by questions and answers. Their books will be available for purchase and signature.


Joe Wancho

10:15 a.m. – “Hebrew Hammer: A Biography of All-Star Third Baseman Al Rosen”

Wancho has written over 200 biographies for American Baseball Research Society. Members of the organization write biographies and stand-alone stories about players, teams and moments in Major League history. This is the first solo book project.

Jim Sulecki

11:30 a.m. – “The Cleveland Rams: The NFL Champions Who Gone Too Soon, 1936-1945”

Sulecki’s 2016 book focuses on the team that moved to Los Angeles after the 1945 season. The Browns then started playing in Cleveland in 1946.

Vince Guerrieri

1 p.m. – “Strange Times at Cleveland Sports – Bottlegate, Bedbugs and Burying the Pennant”

Guerrieri, editor of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram and award-winning writer, spent 18 months to two years researching and writing her book, which will be officially released in November.

“I’m not going to lie,” he said, “some of them were traumatic. You relive many of those moments. Some of them are weird. You may laugh, but you go, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe this happened.’ “

He added that the book “was basically my pandemic project.” He was born into conversations on Twitter about weird sporting events in Cleveland, and he found himself saying, “Wow, there are a lot. I could probably get them a book. “

The museum is located at League Park, 6601 Lexington Ave., Cleveland.
