We meet once a month on the third Monday of the month at the Spaghetti Western Restaurant located at 1608 Shepherd Drive just south of I-10 in Houston at 7:00 pm CST. If the Astros are playing a home game that evening, we schedule the meetings for another day usually the Monday before or after. 

Please join us in person or via Zoom. Email chapter president Joe Thompson at splendorajoe@gmail.com for details. Check out the recordings of our previous meetings below and subscribe to our chapter Youtube Page!

2022 Chapter Meetings

April 16, 2022


The Larry Dierker Chapter held its monthly meeting at Constellation Field, the Sugar Land Space Cowboys ballpark, on Saturday, 16 April and were welcomed by Chapter Leader Joe Thompson. Twenty-eight members and guests gathered prior to the game to enjoy hearing from Mike Capps, the announcer for the Round Rock Express (Texas Rangers AAA Club) and Gerald Sanchez, the announcer for the Space Cowboys (Houston Astros AAA Club). Both entertained us with interesting stories from their extensive broadcasting experiences. Deacon Jones, former major leaguer and Special Advisor to the Space Cowboys, was scheduled to join us but unfortunately, he was dealing with health issues. We wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him at a future meeting.  Chapter Leader Emeritus Bob Dorrill noted that member Dick Biley has also encountered some health issues. After the meeting, attendees enjoyed dinner and the game on a beautiful spring evening.  Our next chapter meeting will be held on Monday, May 16 at the Spaghetti Western Italian Restaurant on Shepherd Drive in Houston. A Zoom option will be available for those wishing to attend remotely.  The main speaker will be Ted Meyer, a management side labor lawyer and baseball “historian” (at least in my mind) for over 30 years. He will talk to us about the subject of his new book Championing the Cause of Leadership: a Look at the Baseball Dynasties. The book is available on Amazon and other book sellers.
