Baseball was the most popular sport among Fargo children in 1897. It was popular enough for the May 22, 1897 Fargo Forum and Daily Republican to print this: "Baseball kids are prohibited from operating in the Northern Pacific Park - too many plate glass fronts endangered by foul balls." I hope those downtown business owners were forgiving (of course, several of them bankrolled the 1897 team).
