St. Paul celebrates legacy of Grover Cleveland Alexander
From his humble Nebraska beginnings to the major leagues, Grover Cleveland Alexander left behind a legacy. Sunday marked the close of another successful weekend for the village of Saint Paul.
This was the 21st year Saint Paul held the celebration in honor of Alexander.
Residents marked the weekend with a vintage baseball game, a classic car show and of course the screening of the movie "The Winning Team."
Which is the story of Grover Cleveland Alexander and starred former President Ronald Reagan.
Residents say all in all it was a great weekend.
"We got really lucky for this weekend, it cooled down in the 80's, we really had a great turnout for the parade and all the events in the park and everyone just had a great, great time," said Bob Dvorak.
Also during the weekend festivities, Lee Tate, who played baseball for the Saint Louis Cardinals in 1958 and 59, was inducted into the Museum of Nebraska Major League Baseball.
He says he's humbled by the honor.
"I was surprised to see that, in fact, I was second placement behind Bob Gibson for the exhibition, so I feel pretty good," said Tate.
The festivities wrapped up Sunday afternoon with a Texas Hold'em tournament and a burn out contest.
