Original airdate 
May 13, 2022

Emmy Award winning WQED producer Beth Dolinar who also publishes a regular column in the Washington Observer discusses the free public screening of "A Season to Remember: The Baseball Boys of Mon City" at Ringgold Middle School on May 25th, 2022.

Beth is joined by Laura Magone, President of the Monongahela Area Historical Society, and Founder and Administrator of the Facebook Wedding Cookie Table Community. She holds the Guinness Book of World Records award for the largest cookie table. Laura will join in presenting baseball themed cookies as part of the evening. Laura discusses her work that has resulted in a Facebook community of nearly 100,000 friends and an article in the New York Times. Did the tradition of the cookie table start with Italians in Pittsburgh or with central European immigrants in Youngstown, Ohio? Laura has the answer. Ringgold graduate David Solomon, Vice President of Production at WQED, serves as Master of Ceremonies and a panel discussion which includes local historian Scott Frederick will consider the director's cut with never-before-seen additional footage from the film.

"A Season to Remember" tells the story of the 1952 team from Monongahela in Washington County that would make it to the final game of the Little League World series. It was the first and only time a Pittsburgh area team would do so.
