The “Last Monday” for April at the Versailles Area Museum will Share the Story of Baseball in the 1940’s & 50’s.

It seems that since time began baseball and summer in the small, rural villages of Osgood, Yorkshire, Russia, North Star, Versailles and others have gone hand in hand. As long as we were home before the street lamp came on all was well. Many boys and girls developed real skills in these back yard games and many went on to prove their prowess in semi pro ball.

These successful teams of the past will be celebrated on April’s “Last Monday”. We invite all those who played the game or cheered them on to join us in remembering the crack of the bat, the smell of pop corn, and the sounds of cheering fans as we recall those summer days and our own field of dreams.

If you have pictures, rosters, or even uniforms, bring them along with your stories that only get better with age.

This upcoming “Last Monday” will be held at the Versailles Area Museum on April 25th beginning at 1:00 p.m.

We hope you’ll invite your friends for another wonderful afternoon program at the museum.
