[Baseball fans on cars image]

Baseball was a favorite Sunday afternoon pastime – after church, fans headed to the

games. In this 1940s photograph, four stylishly dressed women are socializing and

enjoying soft drinks in the backfield. The young woman standing at left is our cousin

Shirley Mitchell Jackson. The baseball team sold soft drinks, peanuts and other snacks

during the games to raise money for equipment and uniforms. The playing field was in a

swampy area on the current site of Winter Park Village, along Webster and Denning
