Bisbee's Boys of Summer

Bisbee, Arizona. Home of the Copper Queen Mine and about 6,100 residents. Artisans and hippies call the county seat of Cochise county home. So do the Copper Kings Baseball Club. They play at Warren Ballpark, the nation's oldest continuosly operating ball park. It opened in 1909 and is celebrating its centennial this year.

I used to live in Cochise county. My folks still do. They have attended a few game at Warren Ballpark, including the scheduled Centennial celebration on the Fourth of July. But, it got rained out. The make up game is on August 1st.

My folks sent me a the first series of baseball cards produced by The Friends of the Warren Ballpark. They were able to get three of the cards signed.

The second series of cards was due to be released at the Centennial celebration. I'm assuming that they'll be available at the make up game.

My folks also sent other goodies in the box, some of which I'll share later. Thanks, Mom and Dad.

  1. Thanks for the post on the Warren Ballpark. I live in Goodyear, AZ and I think that my wife and I are going to go to the game on August 1st. I know that Pete Vucurevich is throwing out the first pitch so I am going to try and get him to sign something. Thanks again for the post!
