America’s favorite past time not only represented by the Hawks

While it is true that we have a well known baseball team, with players moving on to the majors for the last 20 years, the team that is often forgotten was in existance from 1892-1973.
The Outlaws, the baseball team from the Old State Penitentiary, was a team formed by inmates, played by inmates, against other inmates, and coached by both inmates and even prison staff.
The league ran from the first year of the prison opening, until it’s close in 1973. The inmates at the prison today still play, both against other inmates and even guards. and call themselves the Outlaws in memoriam.
