Former Major League Baseball pitcher Greg Litton will be the guest speaker at noon Friday at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum.

Litton will discuss his playing and coaching career at the Our Love Affair with Baseball series. The $10 luncheon includes admission to the multimedia exhibit.

The 52-year-old Litton was born in New Orleans, but later moved to Pensacola. He attended Pensacola Junior College before being drafted in the first round of the 1984 draft by the San Francisco Giants.

Litton made his major league debut May 2, 1989 and stayed with the Giants another three years. He hit a homer in the 1989 World Series, best-known for having the Loma Prieta earthquake. The Giants were swept by the Oakland A’s. He also played for the Seattle Mariners (1993) and Boston Red Sox (1994).

Currently, Litton is a public speaker and announcer for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, a Double-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds.
