Details

It's impressive how many people turned out for this 1901 baseball game between rivals Coquille and Marshfield (now Coos Bay) on the southern Oregon coast. When you consider that the total population at that time for the two towns was about 2,000, it appears maybe one in four made it to the ballpark.

Baseball was a very big deal in those days, and most small towns fielded their own teams. This is one of a series of three photos of the Marshfield stadium taken by photographer Ernest A. Stauff that year. You can see the others by clicking on Related Items below.
