Join us for an evening of stories with Indianapolis Indians legend Razor Shines. Shines, a former Major League Baseball player and fan favorite, will recount his youth in the 1960s and 70s and his era of professional baseball.

An open Q&A session will follow, along with time for photos and autographs. The evening will also feature a special presentation on the life of Indiana cycling legend Major Taylor from Kisha Tandy, curator of social history at the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites. 

The event is the second annual Trailblazers: An Evening of Athletic Inspiration — The Anthony J. Bridgeman Lecture on Sports and Society event, where noted historic athletes and leaders reveal how they overcame hardship and inspired others to do the same. Trailblazers is part of Momentum Indy, which seeks to showcase the diversity of Indiana’s sports icons who paved the way for others to succeed.

Admission is free and preregistration is encouraged.
