“Despite being mostly rural and having a small population, at one time nearly every small town in North Dakota fielded an amateur baseball team. The annual state tournament, held every August in Jamestown, was one of the largest of its kind anywhere in the country. Lots More Fun That Way: The First Thirty Years of Amateur Baseball in North Dakota, is the story of the story of the growth of the state's amateur baseball organization after its formation after World War II up until the 1960s when the availability of other recreational opportunities resulted in a decline in participation. It is also the story of the men who played, many of whom are still living, and their memories of this period in North Dakota history.”
