Base Ball Ticket

Baseball Tales from the 1890s

Chad Kehe, owner of Midnite Towing on Harrison Street in Jamestown, walked into the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame asking for help. He related that he was doing some remodeling in an old home in the city when he discovered this ticket laying on a rafter support.

The 25 cent admission price, the fact that "Base Ball" was spelled as two words rather than one, and the printing style led us to think that the ticket was quite old. Maybe it was from a team that played at Celoron Park before the current Diethrick Park baseball stadium was constructed in 1941.

Research was undertaken starting with the names C.H. Cutler and W.S. Carnahan as reference points. To discover the answer we found in a Jamestown Evening-Journal article of July 7, 1939, read the story in the April 2016 newsletter.
