Baseball

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: 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 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. 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. The Norway Baseball Association  was formed to see to the: maintenance, improvement and use of the field and facilities.
