The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, September 28, with a presentation about Baseball Under the Big Sky. Award-winning journalist Skylar Browning and researcher Jeremy Watterson reveal Montana’s relationship with America’s favorite pastime from 1866 to present day. The two Missoulians will discuss the fights, booze, cheating and gambling that fueled the state’s first professional league in 1892, the star-studded barnstorming tours and threats of bloodshed that marked the turn of the twentieth century, and the ways in which Montana players who made their way to big league diamonds helped change the sport on and off the field.
Jeremy Allan Watterson grew up on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation along the Hi-Line in Wolf Point. He has provided color for baseball games on KVCK radio. Skylar Browning is the editor of the Missoula Independent, Montana’s only alternative news weekly.
