In the early years of the 20th century, before they had a big league team to cheer for, most Milwaukee baseball fans followed their favorite sport in the form of semiprofessional sandlot teams representing schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, or ethnic groups. The Kosciuszko Reds, the pride of the Polish-American South Side, were one of the best known and most successful of these squads. Neal Pease, who teaches a course on baseball in American history at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, will recreate the colorful story of the "Koskys" with PowerPoint illustrations.
