1975 Women's Softball on Old Field

75 0604 02
June 4, 1975

Younger generations may not be fully appreciative of the outstanding sports and recreation facilities in Soperton. Here we see a women's softball game in progress at the old football field, which was used from the revival of football in 1946 until the new stadium was built at the high school. The scene is now a part of Jean Gillis Park. Men's softball games were being played at the site as early as 1950 with that same chicken-wire backstop.

Others that week: Candystripers meeting, Mickey Palmer and Cal Alford with chute-scale, B&PW Club officers and guests.
