  • More About This Book
The town of Kennesaw was officially incorporated in 1887 and organized a baseball team shortly thereafter. In June 1908, the Atlanta Journal Constitution ran a headline, “Hail to the Amateurs—Here’s a Good Georgia Bunch,” featuring a photograph of the team with “Kennesaw” emblazoned across their jerseys. Kennesaw’s former semiprofessional team, the Smokers; its little league parks; four high schools; and Kennesaw State University have contributed to a robust regional baseball culture. These respected and diverse baseball programs have produced many college-level, minor-league, and major-league players.
