The Native Sons of the Golden West and Baseball History Buffs started out singing "Take me out to the Ballgame"it was awesome! Coffee! Donuts! and Cracker Jacks! Were served, over 100 of us showed up with the baseball spirit!
So Just who are “The Native Sons of the Golden West”? They are a fraternal service organization founded in 1875, limited to native born Californians and dedicated to historic preservation, documentation of historic structures and places in the state, the placement of historic plaques and other charitable functions within California.
The NSGW “Sutter Parlor #261” with the help of President Matthew David and fellow members dedicated a monument to Marysville’s Baseball History Moment.
At 9:30 NSGW Grand President James P. King resided with other members of the NSGW from various areas in California. A special plaque will be placed on the “Hust Bros.” Building to dedicate and honor, a historic moment, the “Municipal Baseball Park”, where it was once located, where a special game was played.
The “Bustin Babes” who beat “Laurfin Lou’s” The plaque honoring Bath Ruth and Lou Gehrig during the big game of October 25, 1927, So many great stories were shared about the big day!
Thanks NSGW for preserving and documenting another bit of Marysville’s History.
What an Honor!
