Inside Appalachia is Looking for Your Appalachian Baseball Stories

Inside Appalachia is working on an episode about baseball in Appalachia. Many people who grew up in Appalachia remember playing baseball -- especially when coal was thriving. Company-sponsored teams were common throughout the coalfields.
