AN AUTOGRAPHED BASEBALL

 

Many times I am asked, "Would you like to see my sports scrapbook?" My answer is usually "Yes" as I love to spend hours looking at old newspaper clippings. After I have examined these scrapbooks sometimes there's a final question, "What is this worth/" My reply is usually, "It is priceless."

History of the Midwest Baseball League

 

The Midwest Baseball League started operations in 1956. It was just a name change from The Mississippi Ohio Valley League (M.O.V.) which operated 1949-1955. The M.O.V. was a throw-off of the Illinois State League which operated 1947-1948.
