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.
