We are saddened today to learn of the passing of a coaching legend, Gordie Gillespie. Coach Gillespie was a member of our advisory board and his accomplishments in the sports world and the world in general were many. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Coach Gillespie's family and the many players he has mentored and coached over the years. Read more from the Herald-News.

The baseball world suffered a "double shock" yesterday when it was learned that in addition to losing the legendary collegiate coach, Gordie Gillespie, we also lost the great Minnie Minoso. Minnie is a long-time member of our "Lou Boudreau Hall of Fame" and has attended a number of our Annual Awards Banquets. He was an outstanding ambassador for our game and will be missed greatly by everyone in the baseball community around the world. Read more.

Chicago Baseball Celebration a Home Run Success

This past Sunday January 26th, the Pitch and Hit Club of Chicago hosted their annual banquet honoring and celebrating the game of baseball. For the 68th time, the evening was a home run knocked out of the park. With over a dozen speakers on the night, the common theme among them all was family support and a pure passion for the game. If someone was ever unsure as to why the game of baseball is referred to as "America's Favorite Past Time," the speakers on hand confirmed that it is by leaps and bounds.

Learn more about Tony La Russa's new book One Last Strike.

"I wanted to write this book because there’s a story that answers the question I got asked at the end of last season: How did you club win the world championship, especially when you had to come from so far behind?" La Russa said. "This is the first time I went back and realized everything the club went through and overcame to be the champion -- big, big difference looking back instead of looking forward."

The mission of the Pitch & Hit Club of Chicago is to expand, develop and promote the great game of baseball at all levels. We are particularly interested in reaching out to the youth of our communities to increase involvement in baseball here in the Chicagoland area. We continue our nearly 7 decade tradition of honoring the people who have given so much to the game from the youth and amateur levels all the way to the major leagues! Our upcoming annual awards dinner in January 31, 2016 will be our 70th event honoring true baseball heroes!

Thanks to the hard work of our Board and Club Members along with the support of the community, we are able to continue our time honored commitments, donating a portion of our dinner proceeds to numerous great baseball-related causes such as The Professional Baseball Scouts Foundation, Cubs Care, White Sox Charities, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), and recently the Grand-kids foundation (Curtis Granderson). As club president, I pledge to continue the good work done by previous presidents and club members dating back to our club's inception in 1942.

Herb Forkenbrock, President
