Art in the Park

St. Louis Hills, rich in architecture and home to beautiful Francis Park, provides the backdrop for Art in the Park. Family, friends and neighbors enjoy art, music and food surrounding the majestic lily pond at the center of the park.
The Belleville Stags were handled Saturday night at the Field of Dreams by the Walker Tavern Wheels of Brooklyn, Mich. The final tally was 15 aces to four.
The Michigan club's fly chasers left the Stags batsmen perplexed by their speed, stealing several seemingly sure safeties in the gaps. At the dish, their batsmen rarely settled for one base when their struck balls found a safe landing on the outfield grass.
The Wheels scored twice in the first and were aiming for a third ace when a baserunner declined to stop at third base when the ball trickled away from the base tender. The hurler, backing up the play, threw home to nip the runner.
Belleville cut the lead to 2-1 in the second, but could draw no closer as the Walker Tavern strikers sprayed line drives around the yard. Even when they failed to make contact, fortune was with the Wheels. Three times high pop ups struck what we're told are "wires" that carry something called "electricity" which were strung across the field from third base to right center field.
Walker Tavern slowly and steadily pulled away.
We're told that the Wheels often play a futuristic version of the Grand Old Game in which the striker is not retired if the ball is fielded on a single bound. So, they had little trouble playing the 1860 version of the game with the extra steps they were afforded after a bound.
Still, the Wheels played a gentlemanly game. And, despite the loss, the Stags had a magical time playing on the Field of Dreams. ...
The Belleville Stags were triumphant in their long-awaited return to the mystical Field of Dreams located in the cornfields of eastern Iowa.
With a throng of cranks in attendance, Belleville scored early and often en route to a 19-7 win over the DuPage Plowboys.
It was a perfect late summer evening for the grand old game with blue skies giving way to a spectacular sunset and temperatures in the low 80s. But the ghost of Shoeless Joe was nowhere to be seen. ...
