Grover Cleveland Alexander musical to be presented at Northwest High School

Even though St. Paul hosts Grover Cleveland Alexander Days every July, many people don’t know much about the Howard County native. Alexander, who grew up in Elba and St. Paul, is a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. His role in the 1926 World Series is part of baseball lore. Pitching for the St. Louis Cardinals, the Nebraskan won two games in that series against Babe Ruth’s Yankees and saved another game, getting a key strikeout against Tony “Poosh ‘Em Up” Lazzeri. Alexander’s life was the subject of a 1952 film, “The Winning Team,” starring Ronald Reagan and Doris Day.
