Former Rome player and manager Ron Kutz was nice enough to share his memories of a number of different things, from old Rome teams, the town of Rome in general, and miscellaneous musings of facts and personalities around town. You can find a lot of interesting stories told by Ron in this here part of the site, as he grew up a Rome kid.
He, along with others, also took time out of their schedules to research a lot of information. The cherry on top is these two photos that were found - one on ebay - of old Rome teams that date back all the way to 1894 (bottom picture).
Pretty amazing when you think about it. Although baseball in this Lakes era is a bit different with only a handful of players playing for their home towns, the lineage in the small town of Rome's history is fun to hear about. Thanks again to Ron and all of his contributors for some entertaining stories.
