Baseball has been played in Norway since our Civil War veterans got back
home from the war and taught the game - which they learned from New
York soldiers - to the boys back home... and the love affair between Norway
and Baseball was born.
Norway’s passion for baseball is exemplified by our: 4 major leaguers, 17
minor leaguers, dozens of college players and scores who played town-team.
In 1965, Norway High School won its first State Championship. In 1991, the
streak would end at 20 when our school closed. A Movie was made about
that Final Season and we celebrate our town’s baseball history at the
Baseball Museum of Norway.

In August of 2015, the Benton Community School District sold the ball park
to the City of Norway. The Norway Baseball Association was formed to see
to the maintenance, improvement and use of the field and facilities.
