Keeping up with past and present happenings in a remarkable small town.
Ah, yes, those Butler Yankees of yesteryear.As a kid, Dad and I would go to the ballpark towatch the Yankee farm team "play ball" Maybe even get a hot dog. "Whitey"Ford was one of the Yankees who labored with the team prior to his call-up to the majorsas I recall. Seems to me the Butler Yankees werewell supported by the folks in Butler long ago and far away. Is there a team there now?
The Butler Blue Sox play at the former Pullman Park. It is now called Kelly Automotive Park. "The BlueSox are proud to play their home games on the same field that has hosted some of the greatest ballplayers of all-time, including Joe DiMaggio, Walter Johnson, Lou Gehrig, and Josh Gibson. Though known as Pullman Park for over 70 years, the ballpark became Kelly Automotive Park when its naming rights were purchased in 2014."
