Town Teams: More than Baseball examines the the players, the fans, the rivalries, and the impact of town team baseball in Kansas in the early 1900s. Virtually every town, no matter how small, had a baseball team. And on Sunday afternoons, after putting in sometimes 60-70 hours a week at their jobs, the men of the town would put on their uniforms and play ball. For most, there was no pay and no shot at the majors. It was just for the love of the game.
Town Teams examines why amateur and semi-pro baseball exploded in popularity. The film explains how baseball became the ‘social media’ of its time. It connected people through athletic competition. But it grew to become much ‘Bigger than Baseball’ as towns across the state competed for highways, county seats, and economic development.
