Red's son to visit Cascade

Urban C. Faber II, the only descendant of the Hall of Fame pitcher, plans to visit his father's hometown -- Cascade, Iowa -- on Saturday, July 8.

The occasion will be the Telegraph Herald Semi-Pro All-Star Game, where ceremonies will include a tribute to Red Faber and a special presentation of memorabilia to the Tri-County Historical Museum by Red's only son. (The photo of Urban was taken in the Chicago area several weeks ago, when Urban signed over the items to the museum.)

I'm pleased to have played a small part in these arrangements -- and thrilled that the museum's Faber exhibit will be bolstered by Urban's donation.
