Baseball in Hammond

 

From the Hammond Neighbours Facebook group:

Sandy Macdougall: “Lorne Road Park – the one with the tennis courts, trees and meandering paths – was the site of the best baseball park around until, Hammond Stadium was built. Lots of local baseball history was written there. Larry Walker Sr. and his father, Ken Walker played ball there, among other great ball players.”

Heather Pearsall Mattila: “My dad Chuck Pearsall played ball there as well. We went to all the ball games as youngsters…..”

Sandy Macdougall: “Chuck Pearsall was one of the best pitchers ever in minor baseball.”
