Hometown Home Runs


Dubuque's baseball roots date back to 1855, when according to lore, the 4th ward "on the hill" challenged the 3rd ward "on the flats" to a baseball game in the earliest local game on record. After two hours being pummeled by the players from the flats, the 4th ward players gave up.
