The Easton Historical Society and Museum will be having our monthly open house featuring Easton’s very first Little League baseball charter in 1952. This will be on Sunday, March 19th from 11-4:30 at our Museum.
We would like to invite all and especially the members of the very first team members that played and participated. A few guest speakers and displays of pictures of the very early days will be there.
The first 4 teams in the league were: Fernandes(super market), Lions (The Lions club), Pioneers( The Pioneer club, and Huskies(The Easton Huskies club). All games were played at Frothingham Park.
A few years later Easton’s LL expanded to 6 teams with Howard’s Insurance and Easton Pharmacy joining in.
Below is a schedule of the 1953 season with names of all the players, coaches and leadership.
So many familiar names and urge all of them and their families to attend if possible.
We will also have pictures, schedules from the 50s, 60s and beyond.
We are looking for donations of any artifacts you may have that would add to this history. Hats, gloves, bats, helmets, pictures and uniforms for our display and archives.
We are looking for a very exciting day! Refreshments will be served.
