Jim Bailey: Babe Ruth World Series paid a visit to Anderson

Jim Bailey

(Continued)

It was the last national tournament to be held in Anderson. And some of the prestige in youth baseball has been diluted by adding multiple levels of competition, as well as summer competition in many other sports. Now the trend toward near-year-round school limits the time available for youth baseball tournaments.

But Andersonians, though perhaps in dwindling numbers, will remember when people across the nation flocked to Memorial Field for one week in August 1965.

Jim Bailey’s reflections on Anderson’s past appear on Sunday. His regular column appears on Wednesday. He can be reached by e-mail at jameshenrybailey@earthlink.net.
