The 1940s

The 1940s was very hard to research due to lack of articles and materials. We are grateful to the Wayne “Inky” Schneider and his son Craig who have supplied most of the media we have. They had newspapers articles from 1944 to 1946 as well as some very treasured photos from games played at Playwicki Field. Note that we also had much fewer games due to WWII. We updated game day, date and time when the information was available either through an old ad program or from newspaper articles.
