When I was in Elementary school I discovered Baseball Cards. You could buy a pack of 14 cards and a stick of gum for a nickel. I would go to the candy store on Kings Highway off Ocean Avenue, buy a fresh box of 24 wax packs and rush home so I could slowly open each pack and pour over the player statistics and random bits of interesting trivia on the back of each card. Did you know that Pee Wee Reese got his nickname from his marble shooting days as a boy, Mickey Mantle’s middle name was Charles or that Hank Arron was born in Jacksonville Florida?

FJMC Affinity Groups

Two years ago the FJMC Sports Affinity Group hosted a Webinar with a baseball card historian and they had my attention. As the seasons changed, webinar offerings were expanded to include sports legends and personalities from football, wrestling, hockey, basketball and more. Many of these and other previous FJMC Webinars are posted to FJMC’s YouTube page.

The FJMC Sports Affinity Group is part of a growing list of FJMC Affinity Groups and is offered at no charge to all Men’s Clubs and Brotherhoods across the United States and around the world.  Learn more at https://www.fjmc.org/sports-affinity-group or email Sports@FJHMC.org.
