Early Baseball Teams On Hatteras

Record #:
In this SEA CHEST interview, Lloyd Styron discusses baseball on Hatteras Island. The first time he played the game was in 1914, and the first game he ever saw was between a team from Washington, North Carolina, and the Hatteras team. The visiting team came by boat. Baseball was played in the morning by boys aged 9-13; the 14-17- year-olds played until mid-afternoon; and the men played until dark. Styron recounts some of the games he played, other players, and players who went on to play major league baseball.
