Esmond Dairy Baseball Team

The Esmond Dairy baseball team is pictured above on the grounds of the Ohio Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home. In the 1920s, the Esmond Dairy sponsored baseball, football, and basketball teams. An article in the May 15, 1922 issue of the Sandusky Star Journal reported that the baseball fields at the Ohio Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home were a big improvement over the baseball field at Huron Park, where they had been playing. While we do not know exactly which players are in this photo, you can read about historical baseball games played in Sandusky on microfilmed copies of the Sandusky Register and the Sandusky Star Journal at the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center.

From about 1919 through the 1970s, Esmond Dairy was located at 1610-1616 Campbell Street in Sandusky
