This year's History Zone
will take you out to the ball game as it explores the
history of early baseball in Parsons.
The photographic exhibit
will concentrate on ball teams before 1940 - minor and major
league teams that played in Parsons, teams consisting of
employees of the Katy Railroad and city league teams
sponsored by local businesses.
Because "Katy Field" was
one of the largest and best equipped sport venues in the
four-state area in its heyday - the 1920's - the facility
hosted teams from Sr. Louis and Chicago and was the home
field for most league action, including games played during
the annual "Katy Olympics".
Don't miss the chance to
see this special exhibit - and help yourself to some peanuts
and cracker jacks while you're there!
