Spokane Spokesman-Review: Eddie Gaedel Day

In a nice column and cover photo that he did for the August 19, 2018 edition of the Spokane Spokesman-Review, here’s a link to how writer Dan Pelle handled the celebration of the Eddie Gaedel Society party that convened at O’Doherty’s Irish Pub in Spokane Sunday to commemorate the single-time appearance of the 3′ 7″ tall Eddie Gaedel as a batter in the big leagues for the St. Louis Browns on that same historical date in 1951.

Thanks for the e-mail notice from Eddie Gaedel Society Manager Tom Keene about this coverage of the 2018 party. As a Houston based member of the same group, we want to applaud Tom Keene as “the straw that stirs the drink” for making sure that little Eddie Gaedel’s place in baseball history is remembered accurately and never forgotten.

Have a nice Tuesday, everybody!
