Red Dirt Baseball: The Post-War Years, Small Town Professional Baseball in Oklahoma, 1946-1961
By Peter G. Pierce -- $19.95 (Paperback)
Fifteen Oklahoma cities and towns fielded teams in four leagues between 1946 and 1961. Dozens of past and future Major Leaguers toiled in the bushes of the Sooner State after World War II. Red Dirt Baseball: The Post-War Years tells the story of those leagues and the ball clubs from Ada to Shawnee along with hundreds of photos of towns, teams, and players.
