Loyal Reader Ed Fleisher wrote and followed up with a telephone call in regards to my ongoing search for a photograph that showed the baseball diamond that was once located in the infield of the track at the Ashtabula County Fairgrounds.
Ed, a member of the last graduating class of Andover High School in 1960 who now resides in Geneva, said his dad was involved with the great Andover Athletics town team.
As Ed related so well, Andover, like pretty much every community in the county, sent its town team to the fair each year for a tournament, which was quite a big deal “back in the day.”
All of which makes my request to find a photograph of some type that shows how the ballfield laid out in the middle of the infield even more intriguing.
Anyone knowing of such an item is asked to contact me at the email address that appears below or by calling (440) 998-2323 extension 244 and leaving a message.
