1946 Minonk baseball team

This is a picture of Minonk's town baseball team that played other towns in the area. Many of the players were young men just back from World War II. It appears that the picture was taken out at Sutton's ball diamond which was located south of the old Jumbo north of the city. The base of the Jumbo is in the background. The picture is from the estate of Carola Antons.
