Episode Description:

A critical component of every mill village was the baseball oval, the diamond, the field, and nowhere were those places treasured more than here in the Blackstone Valley. Historian Doug Reynolds explains the role baseball played in labor relations. To get a real feel for what it was like to play ball back in those days, we talk with Charlie Mullaly of the Millville Rovers. Baseball was serious business for both the mill workers and the mill owners. Join us as Along the Blackstone Episode #4 as we learn about major league greats Gabby Hartnett and Tim McNamara from Millville MA(John McNamara), McCoy Stadium, home of the Pawtucket Red Soc (Ranger Jack Whittaker), and the role that mill owner Walter Shuster played in the development of the first major developmental league for Major League Baseball, the industrial Blackstone Valley League (Clarence Gagne).
