'Perfect Practice Makes Perfect': Legendary Dodger Maury Wills Looks Back

A conversation with 1962 National League MVP Maury Wills and Chattanooga Lookouts President and General Manager Rich Mozingo.

Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Maury Wills is coming to Chattanooga on Tuesday, June 17th to be the keynote speaker at the 2014 Southern League All-Star Luncheon.  This year, the Chattanooga Lookouts will host the Southern League All-Star game, with the game itself on the 17th at AT&T Field, and a home run derby happening on July 16th at historic Engel Stadium.
