Some stories are larger than life.


That’s why we call them legends.


The team at Pelopidas is proud to partner with Sports Classics Inc. President Dick Zitzmann to bring National Baseball Hall of Famers and other celebrity athletes to fundraisers and social events. We call this offering Line Up a Legend, and it offers our clients once-in-a-lifetime access to some of the most major-league players of them all.


Imagine: a holiday party with Lou Brock. A fundraiser for a national children’s charity featuring Tony LaRussa. An intimate, upscale dinner with guest of honor Bob Gibson. A festive gala with the late, beloved Stan “The Man” Musial. Or a Cardinals home game in a luxury suite, where you just happen to be mingling with Brock, Gibson, Whitey Herzog, and Red Schoendienst. Pelopidas and Line Up a Legend have made each of these happen.


Our clients and friends have amazing stories to tell, as they return home with baseballs autographed by the game’s greatest legends. But these men are more than spectacular athletes – they are civic leaders and philanthropists. We are proud to celebrate their accomplishments. We are honored to be part of their narrative.
