Past Guests

LIFE VIEWED THROUGH A BASEBALL LENS

The WSC spans six generations of baseball fans sharing history with 6 wars; team integration in 1947; women members in the 70s; strikes (of the labor kind); scandals on and off the field; and the endurance required of those who love the game.  We’ve hosted more than 400 guest speakers from major-, minor-, and local-league players, owners, executives, management, and umpires to sports writers, announcers, clergy, and even a Baseball Hall of Fame librarian. Red Sox Hall of Famer and fan-favorite Johnny Pesky took the floor 8 times from 1951-2001, setting the record for WSC appearances. And Bill Lee is on track to break that record – you’ll want to show up for that one.
