Neighborhood Baseball

Did you know that, once upon a time, there was a restoration baseball league in St. Louis? At least, according to historian Larry Giles, the league existed for one season in the early 1980's. The league consisted of teams from rehab neighborhoods, although apparently one neighborhood was head and shoulders above the rest.

The championship game was a match between the Soulard "A" and "B" teams.

We should start friendly local leagues for City residents.

Who is up for that?

Lets all vote on the sport and play once the ice melts!
