Town ball exhibit coming to Carver County

This coming spring, the Carver County Historical Society will be hosting an exhibit on town ball in Carver County.

For more than a century, Carver County has enjoyed baseball in towns such as Chaska and Young America.

Carver wants to celebrate the history of baseball in the surrounding area and wants your help.

The exhibit is looking for people willing to loan artifacts related to town ball in Carver County such as gloves, bats, balls, uniforms, trophies, artwork, scrapbooks, and team giveaways or other such related items of special interest would be a gate turnstile.

They would also like to hear your special memories of local town ball teams.

If you would like to share your artifacts or memories about town ball in Carver County contact Cary Smith at either (952) 807-8767 or ZinnBeck@aol.com.
