McIntyre Baseball Team

A group of young baseball players from McIntyre and other nearby towns pose for the camera in this undated photo which is probably from the 1950s. Baseball was a very popular form of entertainment in most coal towns. Initially the Coal Company supported the teams; however,  with the sale of the Company's towns in the late 1940s came the eventual demise of the coal leagues.
