2021 Baseball Exhibit
The Dorchester County Historical Society would like to announce
our newest exhibit for 2021 from Donnie Davidson (seen below).
The exhibit features Baseball in Dorchester County, including a section paying tribute to Baseball’s Negro Leagues.
The exhibit also features all three segments of Cambridge Class D
Professional teams. They are the Canners (1922 – 1928), Cardinals (1937
– 1941), and the Dodgers (1946 – 1949). Displayed are ticket stubs, model
gloves, autograph balls, photos, uniforms, and more. A fantastic trophy won by Fred Lucas in 1929 for leading the Mid-Atlantic league in batting with .407 average is on display.
Uniform shirts also include Hills Point (town team), Cambridge (town team), Cam-
bridge High School and a 2003 used Los Angeles Dodgers shirt worn by Troy Brohawn.
There are displayed photos of former major leaguers who were
born or lived in Dorchester County—seven photos of the eight known.
The Town Team section features The Coca-Cola – Phillips Packing rival
games of the 1930s.
The Negro League Tribute features two facsimile uniforms of the
Baltimore Elite Giants. One uniform was worn by the Delmarva Shore-
birds in 2006; the other one was believed to be worn by the Baltimore Ori-
oles. We have items of various players including Hall of Famer Judy
Johnson from Snow hill and a photo of St. Michaels born Bob Harvey
who was a two time Negro league All-Star.
So come out and enjoy America’s Favorite Pastime, Dorchester County Style!
