The game was delayed by an hour to allow thunderstorms to move further away from the area, but the Forest Lake Brewers and the St. Croix Base Ball Club got their exhibition game of “base ball” in on June 30 at Schumacher Field in Forest Lake, playing with the rules of the sport that were used in the 1860s. By the time the game started, roughly 30 to 40 souls had braved the weather to attend the event. The event was one of the kick-offs of the city’s Fourth of July celebration. Pictures of the Independence Day parade will be featured in the next issue.
