Veedersburg Baseball Team

Veedersburg Baseball Team (again thanks to Bill Boone and here's his explanation of this team -- The team at the left was called the Veedersburg Little Jersey Baseball team. They beat the Ladoga Leaders and Eddie Summers in a Championship game played on Sept. 25, 1902. The writer of the Crawfordsville paper wrote under the headline: FADED HOPES = The Championship goes to the Veedersburg Team--Ladoga Threw the Game Away. Pre-game news labeled the game as the game which would decide the championship of the two counties of Fountain and Montgomery. The Leaders lost 6-3. Eddie Summers played 1st base and had three hits in four times at bat.
