The Making of the Movie Major League – Lovers of the Indians and Hollywood unite for a Cleveland classic. Author Jonathan Knight gives audiences a taste of both when he delves into the behind the scenes action of the movie Major League. “In case you haven’t noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven’t, the Indians have managed to win a few ball games, and are threatening to climb out of the cellar.” – Harry Doyle…sounds oddly familiar.
Jonathan Knight has written nine books on Cleveland sports. Called “one of the most articulate and devoted sportswriters in Ohio” by the Akron Beacon Journal, Knight has been praised by the Plain Dealer, Cleveland Scene, Cleveland Magazine, and ESPN’s Grantland.com. A graduate of Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, Knight has been a guest on numerous Northeast Ohio radio and television programs, including Feagler & Friends and All Bets Are Off With Bruce Drennan. He lives in Columbus, Ohio, with his two sons. You can learn more at jknightwriter.com and follow him on Twitter at @jknightwriter.
The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
