The Atlanta 400 Baseball Fan Club will host author Anne Keene for a Zoom virtual presentation and discussion of her book The Cloudbuster Nine: The Untold Story of Ted Williams and the Baseball Team That Helped Win WWII on Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 7 p.m. EDT. The book tells the little-known story of an era when Ted Williams and Johnny Pesky of the Boston Red Sox and former Boston Braves including, Johnny Sain, Ed Moriarty, “Buddy” Gremp, “Buddy” Hassett and “Ace” Williams paused their careers to fight for their country during WWII.

Available in paperback, it was a finalist for the Casey Award for “Best Baseball Book of 2018” and was recommended by Newsday as a Top 12 read for baseball season. However, it’s not necessary for you to have read the book to enjoy this online session.
