Little League and Reedsburg- 60yrs

Did you know it was sixty years ago that four little league teams started play in Reedsburg. This was the first little league teams in the state of Wisconsin. On May 29, 1951 the first game was held as VFW vs. Hankscraft and the Legion vs. Kiwanis. The official opening was not held until June 15th when the uniforms were delivered. You can discover more about that historic season in an article by Ruth Burmester which was featured in the 1998 book Reedsburg Remembers 150 years.
