About this title


It has been more than half a century since Springfield last hosted minor league baseball. That draught will end at downtown’s newly constructed Hammons Field in the spring of 2005, when the Springfield Cardinals of the AA Texas League bring professional baseball back to the Queen City of the Ozarks. The new team will have quite a legacy to fulfill, as the Springfield Cardinals of the Western Association won several pennants those many years ago, and brought to town such legendary baseball names as Branch Rickey, Joe Garagiola, and Stan Musial. Before the Cardinals came teams like the Midgets, Reds, and Merchants, and a rich tradition of professional and semi-pro baseball dating back to the mid-1880s. Drawing from a wide range of primary sources and complimented by over 100 vintage images, Baseball in Springfield is must-have for those ready to discover the historic connection this city has to the national pastime.

About the Author:

Rusty Aton earned his master’s degree in history from Southwest Missouri State University, is a member of the Society for American Baseball Research, and the General Manager of the Springfield Generals semi-pro baseball club. His knowledge of local baseball history is rivaled only by his love for the game, which comes through page after page in Baseball in Springfield.
