Joe Tinker Day

Visitors to Joe Tinker Day, Saturday, July 27 in Muscotah, celebrated the birthday and birth town of the Hall of Fame Chicago Cub shortstop, watched a vintage baseball game and saw the World's Largest Baseball where a museum for Joe Tinker will be established.

A goat mingles with players during introductions of a vintage baseball game on Joe Tinker Day, Saturday, July 27 in Muscotah, the birth town of the Hall of Fame Chicago Cubs shortstop. Before the game started, volunteers brought a goat named Buster through the crowed, urging spectators to pat him on the head and help “reverse the curse,” in reference to the infamous “Billy Goat” curse that some say has doomed the Chicago Cubs in every World Series race since the turn of the last century.
