Tempe Normal School Baseball Team, 1899

The first baseball game was played in 1891, Tempe Normal vs. Stringtown (an area in Mesa), on record as the first organized sport. Most of the competitions were with local high schools and by 1913 it was the major sport at the Tempe Normal. During World War II the program was interrupted, but began to reorganize in the late 1940s.
