Cy Young’s Connection with Brady Lake Ohio and the Semi-Pro Baseball Team the Ravenna OK’s.

On today’s episode, we begin by providing you with a brief history on a place called Brady Lake that’s between Kent and Ravenna, Ohio. Then, we’re also going to introduce and tell you about a local semi-pro baseball team from Ravenna called the Ravenna OKs who played ball during the early 1900s.

The Ravenna OKs were a very popular and a good playing team who competed against several other semi-pro teams in the N.E. Ohio region including one such Akron team that had (Future at the time) Hall of Famer George Sisler on their roster.

Our presentation then turns to share with you a story about how this Ravenna ball team converged on Brady Lake for a jam-packed double-header on Labor Day 1912 where none other than Cy Young was asked to come pitch for the OKs.

This is a baseball story only few have heard but we happen to have direct and personal knowledge of along with a few pieces of outstanding memorabilia to prove it. The story and details leading up to the baseball game is intriguing as well.
