    Anyone know if this was a high school team, professional team, or a rec team?

    • Jason Weber says:

      I am not positively certain if that was a professional baseball team. Kimberly has and is a very active sports community and the Kimberly Mill had sponsored many teams in several sports throughout the years until the KRA was formed. I would suspect that this is one of those recreational teams from that period.

      For those who may not know, Arnold “Rowdy” Pocan was also a well-known professional wrestler in Wisconsin during the ’30s and ’40s. Later I believe he was a golfer. Baseball, wrestling, and golf – obviously a very talented man athletically.
