  America's Past Time in Hunterdon;  The Hunterdon Tri-County League
Baseball was America's greatest past-time, especially during war.  In fact, our soldiers played baseball between battles during the Civil War.  Baseball was a special distraction as Hitler rose to power in the 1930s.  By 1937, baseball fan and attorney, Wesley Lance, future Judge, Senator and Acting Governor, founded a baseball league comprised of Hunterdon, Warren and Northampton, PA counties.  This league existed for about 4 decades! Senator Lance's son, James W. Lance, Esq., a baseball aficionado and keeper of the family's baseball history, recounts the story.
