Educating Students About Dick Allen

Dan Baker speaking to high school studentsPhiilles Public Address Announcer Dan Baker educates high school students in Philadelphia about Dick Allen’s career and why he belong in the baseball Hall of Fame. This is our third year of going into the classrooms making our  #DickAllenBelongsInTheHOF presentation.

Next Wednesday (October 31) we will make our first college presentation at Immaculata University in Malvern, PA.

The past three years have been quite an experience for us presenters. We start off by saying that most students in the classroom know what the number 42 represents. However, what they don’t know was that right here in Philadelphia Dick Allen faced a similar situation.

We are very excited to say that next spring a huge announcement will be made and this high school educational lesson will be taken to another level. Stay tuned for an
announcement in the very near future.
