Librarian Jim Patrick will discuss Yuma’s role as the San Diego Padres’ spring training home for the first 25 years of the franchise’s history. Special coverage will be given to the 1969 inaugural season when the challenges of getting Yuma ready for Major League baseball required an impressive community effort! The discussion will be held at the Main Library in Meeting Room A from 10:30 am to 11:30 am. There is no charge to attend.
The Main Library is located at 2951 S 21st Drive. For more information, call (928) 782-1871.
