Reverend Bill Greason, will be the guest speaker at St. John on August 13, 2017 at the 10:45 worship hour.

Reverend Greason is Oklahoma’s version of Jackie Robinson and was the first Black player in this city’s professional baseball story. He will be in our city to receive long overdue induction into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on August 14, 2017 at the Riverwind Showplace Theatre.

Bill Greason will be inducted for not only his baseball prowess, but breaking OKC baseball's color barrier. Greason, a pitcher, played two seasons in OKC with the Indians, a minor league team. He played in the Negro League and founded the American Negro League Baseball Association. Greason, an Atlanta, GA native is now a pastor in Birmingham, Alabama.

At 92, Reverend Greason continues to serve most every Sunday with a sermon at Bethel Baptist Church. Reverend Greason is very enthusiastic about his upcoming opportunity to share some words of inspiration when he returns to Oklahoma City for what looks to be the greatest of reward and remembrance for his lifetime of pioneering efforts.

This is a special service you won’t want to miss. Come hear Rev. Bill Greason tell his story.
