Ed Wheatley, Author - "Baseball in St. Louis From Little Leagues to Major Leagues" | October 1, 2020

In 2016, Ed Wheatley retired from his job as an engineer at AT&T. But Wheatley has kept busy — to the point that Reedy Press recently published his third book in as many years. Wheatley’s “Baseball in St. Louis: From Little Leagues to Major Leagues” surveys the city’s rich baseball history, from the Major Leaguers who got their start here to the semi-pro and amateur leagues that flourished for decades.

In the book, Wheatley posits that the classic St. Louis question asking where someone went to high school works just as well when framed around the national pastime and asking where you played baseball.

Presidential Telegram - Kent Steinbrueck

Kent Steinbrueck President St Louis Rotary 2020-2021



Pass on information about our club and about Rotary to your friends

A quote of inspiration

Bob Hope was truly inspirational during his life of 100 years. A family man who was married to Dolores for over 69 years and entertained troops overseas as well as many of us in the general populous. Here is one of his most popular. May he rest in peace.


This is a tribute to a man who DID make a difference

ON TURNING 70 - "I still chase women, but only downhill."

ON TURNING 80 - "That's the time of your life when even your birthday suit needs pressing."

ON TURNING 90 - "You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake."

ON TURNING 100 - " I don't feel old. In fact, I don't feel anything until noon. Then it's time for my nap."

Each week I will highlight something about Rotary that all Rotarians should know or be aware of.

Are you aware of the responsibility or obligation most Rotarians fail to perform? Paying their dues? Attending meetings? Contributing to the club service fund? Participating in club events and projects? No-none of these!

Bowling Alleygations 9-21-20 | Carl Lane

st louis rotary bowling logo

A balmy September evening was spent by fourteen Rotarians who made it to week two of the new bowling season. It was so quiet in the building that the clatter of falling pins was hardly noticed. Maybe that’s because so few pins fell. Maybe it was quiet because Matt Weiss was absent………
