Inside Appalachia is Looking for Your Appalachian Baseball Stories

West Virginia University/ West Virginia & Regional History Center
Jordan Mine Playground, Marion County, W. Va. 1953

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.

What are your baseball memories?

We’re teaming up with the West Virginia Folklife Program for this episode. Please call their hotline and tell us about your baseball story.

Leave a message at 1-844-618-3747. You can also send us an email at insideappalachia@wvpublic.org. We look forward to hearing some of your baseball stories.
