Old Tyme Baseball in Monroe

While the crowd wasn't what we had hoped (100-200), those who came out had a wonderful time and everyone enjoyed the game.

If you didn't make it to the park, you truly missed something special. While the Monroe Golden Lads lost 16-1, they showed a lot of heart and they have what it takes to be a great team. I'd love to see this become a regular weekend event for our community.
