Baseball

Baseball has been played in Norway since our Civil War veterans came back home from the war and taught the game - which they learned from soldiers from New York - to the boys back home... and the love affair between Norway and Baseball was born. Norway’s passion for baseball is exemplified by our: four major leaguers, numerous minor leaguers, dozens of college players and many more who played town-team ball. In 1965, Norway High School won its first State Championship.  In 1991, the streak ended at 20 Championships, when the high school closed.  A Movie was made about that Final Season  and the Baseball Museum of Norway  celebrates all of the town’s baseball history.  For a short History of our Town click on the History Tab. In August of 2015, the Benton Community School District sold the ball park to the City of Norway.  In September the Norway Baseball Association was formed to  see to the: maintenance, improvement and use of the field and facilities.
