The changing of the seasons always sparks a new season of sports events to look forward to.
Baseball is beginning its second month and will be going strong into October. How wonderful for players and spectators who can freely enjoy the sport without masking up, unless they prefer to.
Jamestown Baseball was very active, as it was everywhere. The three main parks – Allen Park, Celoron Park, and Cresent Park had full schedules from April through October. There were semi-pro leagues, inter-state leagues, most industries, and many businesses and organizations
had their own busy baseball schedules. Even Daylight Savings Time was a “player” and was fully supported by the Jamestown Baseball Association, as you see in the clipping of May 2, 1930.
The Jamestown Orioles were the City Champs in 1930, (in the late 1920’s they were the Ariels) and they played on the Oriole field located on Buffalo Street Ext. We would love to know if any of our members have memories or photos of the Orioles team or their field.
If so, let us know!
