Baseball in Ohio County

Hartford Herald, August 2, 1902, has an advertisement for a baseball game between the Nebraska Indian Baseball Team and the Hartford Baseball Club, to be played at Rough River Park.  Of course the Rough River Park we know of is located in Grayson County and was built by the U. S. Army Corp of Engineers and became operational in 1961, so I do not know where the 1902 "Park" was located, but we can safely assume it was a picnic area near the boat ramp in Hartford.

This image is not from Ohio County, but it shows a typical baseball game in the early 1900's.
