Just in time for the opening of the Pulaski Mariner’s baseball season, Raymond F. Ratcliffe Memorial Transportation Museum is selling signed copies of All-Star relief pitcher Billy Wagner’s autobiography to help raise money for the museum.
These signed copies of “A Way Out: Faith, Hope & the Love of the Game” are exclusively offered at The Ratcliffe at a cost of $30, plus tax. According to Pulaski Economic Development Director John White, $10 of each purchase helps fund programming at the museum on South Washington Avenue, across from Pulaski Train Station.
In addition to being a native of Marion and a graduate of Ferrum College, Wagner is married to the former Sarah Quesenberry of the Newbern/Dublin area.
White said the book “chronicles Billy’s life: the significant moments, the joys and tragedies, his 16-year career in baseball, and his life after baseball.”
He added, “’A Way Out’ is not just a baseball book. It’s a story of family, of faith, and, of course, baseball.”
The Ratcliffe is open Tuesday, 3-8 p.m., Saturdays, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sundays, 1-5 p.m.
