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.
The height of town ball in Minnesota was in the 1950s, and Carver County was no different, almost every town had a team.
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.
