#43 PARSONS 1956 AMERICAN LEGION CHAMPIONSHIP BASEBALL TEAM - THE ST. LOUIS CARDINALS IN PARSONS KANSAS IN 1918


You know you're from Parsons, KS when....


One hundred years ago today, April 04.1918, baseball was very much on the minds of many Parsonians, as Rogers Hornsby and all of the St. Louis Cardinals team were in town via the Katy Railroad for a four game series against the Kansas City Blues. The series was played at the large Katy Park ball field, located between Stevens and N.23rd Streets, and was directly served by the Parsons Electric Trolley system. Photos of the Katy Park and baseball games there are hard to find these days
