Alameda: T-shirt League Relaunched at Festive Benefit
Some say sports draw people together. For sure, generations of Alamedans have found this true of baseball.
From the 1950s into the 1980s, the Alameda Recreation and Park Department T-shirt league (all players received T-shirts bearing the nickname of their "home" park) was a summer baseball staple for kids around the city. Except for the 50 cents paid for the T-shirt, players took part free of charge.
At a recent reunion, SJND Baseball players helped celebrate the relaunching of the Alameda Recreation and Park Department beloved T-Shirt Baseball League, Inside Bay Area News reported.
