As I mentioned in last weeks article baseball gradually made its way west in the late 1800’s. The Cincinnati Red Stockings went on a tour of the western United States and played exhibition games. As a result of these games many people were introduced to the sport of baseball.

With winter finally releasing its grip on Morgan Valley, we will witness an amazing transformation. Many of us trade our snow shovels in for garden shovels. Some store their snowmobiles for the winter and load up four-wheelers for a trip to the dunes. Still others will trade snowboards and ski’s for their hiking boots and backpacks.
