Don Larsen felt so bad about missing our June 
luncheon due to scheduling confusion, he offered to come back and do an event with the fan club as soon as possible.

"Why wait?", we decided, "when the biggest publicity-generating event in fan club history is September 9".  As you know, at Busch Stadium on that Friday night, 30,000 fans will pass through the turnstiles with a box under their arm containing a limited-edition Eddie Gaedel Bobblehead. And 30,000 fans will have conversations among their family, "Who were the St. Louis Browns?"

Granddads will explain to grandkids. And so on. And the memory of the St. Louis Browns will have been preserved in one great leap. (And just in the nick of time while we are down to only 19 living Browns players).

So we decided to "Double-down with Don".  Don will be representing the Browns on the field and in the broadcast booth that evening on KMOX radio.

But first, Don will be appearing at a special event JUST FOR BROWNS FAN CLUB members.  And you are invited! 

But due to the last-minute confirmation plus exclusive nature of this huddle with a world series perfect game pitcher, we are recommending (nay, pleading with you) to get your RESERVATIONS IN NOW. First come first serve!  Space is limited.

In other words ... DONT THINK!  It's Don Frickin Larsen and a free Eddie Gaedel Bobblehead!  ACT!  And when you hear the special venue where this pregame party will be taking place (SEE BELOW) ... I know you are going to flip.  

And when you hear how you will be riding in style to be dropped off directly at your stadium gate you are going to flip (plus breathe a sigh of relief knowing that downtown hassles will be at a minimum).

So here are the dirty deets:
