1951 American Legion Post Searcy AR Team.

Perhaps you can provide names.  The article does not supply the names.

This article was published in the Three Rivers Edition of the Arkansas Democrat- Gazette newspaper on July 31, 2005.  It was saved and loaned to me by Super Sleuth Anita Fuller when she saw what I had discovered at an estate sale.  This uniform was saved by some family.......dirty!  It was well-worn and needed washing, which I did although I wondered if it would survive!   It did!  It is a good historic find.

Here you see the front saying Armstrong Caldwell Post 106.  The 1951 photo in the newspaper had no names.  The back said Berryhill's Sptg. Goods.  I remember the store which is now the location of a restaurant downtown on Center Street.

The first team and lots of others were handled by Pinky Berryhill.  A park was named for him, Berryhill Park.  Perhaps some of you baseball lovers can tell us more about Pinky, the park , and what happened to the Armstrong-Caldwell Post 106 baseball league.

Look closely and you can see the usage signs!
