Baseball at Clinton Park

Monday evening, July 11th at 7pm, Richard Leyden will be giving at talk about Clinton Park and the First Northern League 1901-1906. This is sponsored by the Clinton County Historical Association.  Clinton county is where I was born and raised.  I have a fondness for that area of the North Country.

I searched through some papers at the Northern New York Library Network and found notice of a game to be played at Clinton Park.  The local team would be playing the traveling Cuban X Giants.
