Baseball was the Only Game In Town

"The marriage was a natural. Mills and baseball — for more than four decades, spanning a period of time when the world had just completed fighting one world war until a second worldwide conflict ushered in a new era and new technology, the two went hand-in-hand in the South.

Both rose together and, in the end, both shared the same fate of becoming memories. Yet nothing before or since could compare to that golden age of textile league baseball, when community and company pride brought thousands to ballparks in every mill city, town and village every Saturday and Sunday to watch men, who would eventually be called “the greatest generation,” play a game they so dearly loved." ~ Rome Tribune News
