The WSC spans six generations of baseball fans sharing history with 6 wars; team integration in 1947; women members in the 70s; and, hosted more than 400 guest speakers from major/minor/local-league players, owners, executives, management, umpires, sports-writers, announcers, clergy, and 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.
