Playing for Empowerment: Mill Town Baseball During the Depression Era

Playing for Empowerment: Mill Town Baseball During the Depression Era

During the dark days of the Depression, the rural South had little to hang its hope on: God, family, and baseball.

Learn why mill town baseball was much more than a game; it gave real meaning to life.
