The Players

The Players 
 
In the 1930s, there were so many good baseball players that not all of them could get signed with a team. With offers of decent pay as well as regular jobs in the off season, professional players from all over the country descended upon the Carolinas for the opportunity to play baseball. Though some were professional, others came fresh out of high school or colleges to obtain the experience that would take them to the majors. The opportunity to be paid to play the game they loved was the lure, the dream, the hope.
