One hundred years ago in our county, baseball was a popular sport. Every little community had their home team. Their games were well attended and rivalry was big. Unlike today, it didn’t take a lot of money to play the sport you enjoy. They didn’t have to have the fanciest ball fields. Every neighborhood had a dirt lot that was a ball field.
Not much is left of the old Muren anymore. As many places as I have lived, Muren will still be my home stomping grounds. We moved a lot, but always seemed to come back there.
My Aunt Jane McCandless shared this photo of the Muren Browns with me that her husband, Elwood McCandless had. The year was 1921.
This was an enhanced version of the original.
