Dizzy Dean stands among the legendary players who have left their mark on America’s game. History remembers Dizzy not only for his prowess on the pitcher’s mound, but also for his character off of it.
Your newspaper can share the story of Dizzy and the rest of “The Gashouse Gang” — the 1934 St. Louis Cardinals baseball team — in a new serialized story from Missouri Press Foundation and author Carolyn Mueller.
“The Gashouse Gang” is this year’s Reading Across Missouri project, an endeavor to have young readers across the state inside their community newspapers reading and learning in 2015. This is the 10th year for the project.
The story is available now to Missouri newspapers to begin publishing in January. To access the package, which includes the Rules for Publication, promotional ad, teacher guide and 12 chapter features, visit mo-nie.com and use download code: readmo15.
