Historian to discuss memorabilia
Historian and collector Mike Adamovich will discuss baseball memorabilia and how it reflects America’s pastime during a free talk at the Putnam Valley Grange at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 11. The presentation is part of the Putnam Valley Historical Society’s ongoing “Our American History” series.
In addition to the program, titled “Basically Baseball,” there will be door prizes donated by the Hudson Valley Renegades, Rockland Boulders and the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center.
Adamovich, a Yonkers native, is a 24-year veteran of the Army Reserve and was a Senior Court Officer for almost 33 years. A job-related accident prompted him to restart his childhood card collection, which he expanded to include equipment and game-worn uniforms. The grange hall is located at 128 Mill St., at Peekskill Hollow Road.
