Spring and a Young Man's Fancy
Well, Spring is finally here, and a young man's fancy turns to . . . BASEBALL! I knew it was just a matter of time until I would hear from an old New Gretna boy about baseball in the good old days. It was the sport of choice in New Gretna from the 1930's through the 1950's.
Here's a baseball story I received from Dave Kalm just a few days ago. He lives down in sunny Florida where Spring training is really heating up. His story should bring back some memories of exciting New Gretna baseball games for many of you out there.
Looks like the New Gretna team could use a few heavy hitters. Any volunteers out there? We'll supply the bat.
PS- Thanks for the baseball story, Dave. It's appreciated. Unfortunaltely, I don't have too many baseball photos from the old days. How about everyone out there checking out you old photos for baseball pictures and emailing a few to me for our history collection.
