#FlashbackFriday with the Historical Society: State Central Baseball League Field

This week’s #FlashbackFriday post features a familiar location for summer fun!

Pictured here is the State Central Baseball League field, Starin Park’s first-class baseball facility of the early twentieth century. The Central State League, a local amateur league comprised of many area teams, including Fort Atkinson and Jefferson, was first organized in about 1915. Whitewater continued to field a team for only a few years after that; however, Whitewater’s baseball legacy continues on today with the park’s current first-class baseball facility, Treyton’s Field of Dreams.
