Long before the days of million dollar contracts, press agents, and television coverage, baseball was played for fun at East Monbo Park. The park was located in Iredell County between Statesville and Mooresville near a cotton mill in the early part of the 20th-century. Workers were permitted to watch the games, which were played at five o'clock in the afternoon during the week and one o'clock on Saturdays as long as someone stayed behind to keep an eye on the machines. By 1986, the park was completely under Lake Norman, but the memory of the terrific baseball played there will live on.
