after reading the book southern league baseball, I discovered that my hometown of jonesboro,ark. was featured in the book. I played baseball as a kid in the town of paragould against other little league teams.
teaching art in jonesboro, I would take my 1st grade students to arkansas state university's art dept.

After finishing high school in jonesboro, I joined the Navy to play baseball because African-American 's could not attend arkansas univ. a delighful book. baseball was my first love. Mertiss(jay)Thompson
