Recollections of long-ago townteam baseball memories:

After the game the players of both teams would gather at Whitford's, the forerunner of the Red Feather. In stocking feet, often with spiked shoes tied and slung over their their shoulders, would pile into booths. Behind the bar tap beer flowed freely into pichers, the excess foam scrapped off with ivory-colored celluloid scrappers. Waitresses with two pitchers in each hand would deliver them to the booths. In the background someone drops a quarter into the juke box and punches multiple playings of Bob Wills' Texas Playboys recording of San Antonio Rose. The game is hashed and rehashed. Opponents on the field were friends at Whitford's.

A Sunday afternoon after the ball game.

And the good times rolled!
