Event Description

Gary Herron will show images and talk about his newly-published book, "Baseball in Albuquerque" at the April meeting of the New Mexico Postcard Club.  Admission is free.
Professional baseball has been played in the Duke City for more than 70 years, and fans have had the opportunity to see future Dodgers stars like Don Sutton, Ron Cey, Steve Garvey, Orel Hershiser, Eric Karros, and Mike Piazza hone their skills. Hall of Fame members Tom Lasorda and Duke Snider managed here; Darryl Strawberry, Eddie Murray, and Manny Ramirez have spent short stints "rehabbing" here; and big-league preseason games played in Albuquerque give fans a chance to see non-Dodgers favorites.
Author Gary Herron is a baseball hobbyist and collector who also has served as a Pacific Coast League scorer for more than 1,300 ball games for the Dukes and Isotopes from 1983 to 2010. Herron scoured his own photograph collection and that of the Center for Southwest Research and other sources to provide images to give the reader a glimpse into baseball in Albuquerque during the past 100-plus years.
For information on the meeting, call Nancy Tucker at 323-5020 or e-mail
