Let’s Play Ball

The C.C.C. boys played no small part in Daviess County. They seemed to have "a finger in the pie." With their help and with the help of many others, Gallatin had a new ball diamond. These boys were aided with help from local relief workers, and funds from the C.W.A. and the E.R.A. It was estimated the construction would take approximately one month.

The new diamond would replace the one at the old West End Park, and would be located at the north end of Dockery Park. The new diamond was to be 100 yards in length and eighty yards in width.

Up to this time, Gallatin had two teams – the white boys and the colored nine. A third team made of C.C.C. boys was started.
