Ed Wheatley grew up in and around the world of baseball and continues to play in senior leagues across the country. As a leader of the St. Louis Browns Historical Society, he works to preserve the history and legacy of this transplanted American League team. Ed is the co-author of St. Louis Browns: The Story of a Beloved Team and Incredible Cardinals, and he worked on a St. Louis Browns documentary that aired on PBS.
The film Slama starred in was spurred by the book, "The St. Louis Browns: The Story of a Beloved Team," by Bill Borst, Bill Rogers and Ed Wheatley, president of the St. Louis Browns Historical Society.
A tip of the pen cap to St. Louis Browns pennant-waver Ed Wheatley, who has managed to get two of his books placed on a "best of" list.
