Do you remember that feeling you had when you opened your first pack of baseball cards? The nervous anticipation as you slowly opened the wrapper, smelled the gum and hoped for a possible Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris or that elusive Team Checklist card? The fun of reading each player’s statistics and learning random bits of interesting trivia from 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? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you should join the FJMC Sports Affinity Group.

FJMC’s Sports Affinity Group is a timely, interactive, Zoom based discussion about Sports; the people, the stats, the legends and the scandals. Get ready to enjoy some great stories and learn a little bit about the people and events that made them possible as we gather in the spirit of Brotherhood in FJMC’s virtual hospitality suite. Register for the FJMC Sports Affinity Group today at https://fjmc.org/sports-group-register and join the fun.
