New Book about Baseball’s history in Carmel

December 10, 2020

Looking for a gift for the sports fan in your life?!

We have a new book about the history of baseball in Carmel. Baseball had its roots in the bat and ball games played on the schoolyards throughout Carmel in the 1850s. In the 1900s, Carmel had an unusually good baseball club for a town its size. They played in many championship games and several of the players made it to the minor leagues. This book follows the club and their star spitball pitcher, Curtis Bales, through several seasons of the dead-ball era.

If you would like a copy, stop by the Monon Depot. The books will be available December 16.
