Throwback Thursday: Play Ball!

Only on LocalSYR.com

Star Park in 1886. Home of Syracuse baseball for decades. Moses “Fleetwood” Walker played here during this era after being the last African American to play major league baseball until Jackie Robinson.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The Major League Baseball season is underway, and minor league teams like the Syracuse Mets get their season underway in May.

Baseball has a long history in Syracuse, and our friends at the Onondaga Historical Association have some great photos of Syracuse’s baseball past to share with us for Throwback Thursday.

If you have a suggestion for what you would like to see covered in a future Throwback Thursday, email your suggestions to thewebunit@localsyr.com.
