Jeanette Baseball

A Jeanette Baseball Team was organized in 1907. Some of the first players were Emil Price, Ray Weinberg, Fred Hacanson, Osman Rystad, Erick Slovarp, Will Edwards, Otto Witt, Jens Linerud, and a Mr. Knutson.

The baseball diamond was just northeast of the Jeanette store and post office. When a team played on weekdays, the Mount Zion ladies would serve lunch after the game. The Jeanette team claimed they could always beat either Roseglen or Hiddenwood, unless those two teams went together to gang up on Jeanette.
