Dig up those Bainbridge baseball memories

The Bainbridge Island Historical Museum is putting out a call for Bainbridge baseball fans to rummage through their attics and garages for memorabilia and old uniforms used by the island’s home-grown school and club teams.

The museum hopes to put the best of the island’s baseball artifacts on display during a May 19 event they’re calling “Baseballarama.”

They’ll also show archival photos of the island’s earliest teams, which were fielded by company towns like Creosote, Port Madison and Port Blakely and neighborhoods like Pleasant Beach (see above photo).

Organizers are also promising hot dogs and beer, and plenty of opportunity to reminisce about the good old days of Bainbridge baseball. Prizes will be awarded for those who “field” the most members of their team.

To get your memorabilia in the mix, or to get more information, call Chuck Callahan at (206) 842-4479.
