The desire to search for the beginning, the origin of something, is eternal. A story must start at the beginning. Base Ball in a River Town seeks to answer how our national pastime started in New Albany. Who were its founders? Who got the ball rolling across the New Albany fields? The answers to these questions open a window into the past-the lively and booming post-Civil War New Albany. From steamships to railroads, the first team experienced the end of one era and the start of another. The growth of baseball in New Albany also mirrors the rise of baseball across the country. From its infancy to national past time in no time. Learn about the first pitch thrown at the first official game on September 29, 1866, and join that unbroken line of young Southern Indiana men and women who have embraced our national past time. Play Ball!
