LINCOLN - The Blackstone Valley Historical Society will host Rick Harris, a baseball historian who has introduced the history of our state's fascinating baseball facts and anecdotes throughout Rhode Island, on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 2 p.m., at North Gate Toll House, 1873 Louisquisset Pike.

The presentation, in the form of a slideshow and discussion, includes a vast array of historic images. In addition, Rick will randomly give away two of his baseball books, each signed and with a baseball illustration, drawn by him, on the inside cover.

Rick Harris is the Executive Director of the National Association of Social Workers - Rhode Island Chapter, and an adjunct professor at Rhode Island College and Salve Regina University. He has authored six books about baseball history, two of which have been commercially published by The History Press. He was recently honored by the Brown University baseball team for his book "Brown University Baseball: A Legacy of the Game."

The program is free. Donations are gratefully accepted.
