Sunday Baseball, 1921

We suspect there were some heated opinions on both sides of this issue. From the May 12, 1921 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

To Vote on Sunday Ball.
The matter of Sunday baseball having been the bone of contention among opposing factions in Rock Port the past two summers, the voters of Rock Port are going to have a chance to say whether or not Sunday baseball shall be played in the city park this summer.

To that end an election has been called for Tuesday of next week — May 10th — at which time legally qualified voters are to be permitted to express their preferences for or against the sport. — Atchison County Mail.
