Blue Ridge League

From BR Bullpen

Jump to: navigation, search

The first Blue Ridge League was formed in 1915. That class D league had teams in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. This league was founded by Charles W. Boyer, who helped organize the original South Atlantic League in 1903. Boyer was the league's first president, and was based in Hagerstown, MD. In 1916, James Vincent Jamison, Jr., took over as league president, and held the position for the remainder of the league's existence, through 1930.

The original teams from 1915 included the Chambersburg, PA Maroons, Frederick, MD Hustlers, Gettysburg, PA Patriots, Hagerstown, MD Blues, Hanover, PA Hornets, and Martinsburg, WV Champions. Midway through the 1917 season, Jamison awarded the Chambersburg franchise to the Cumberland, MD Colts, after the club refused to pay its annual forfeit fee. The league shrank from six teams to four in 1918, with teams representing Hagerstown, Martinsburg, Cumberland, and Piedmont, WV, but disbanded after three weeks of play due to lack of available players and financial concerns relating to World War I. At the time, it was the last remaining Class-D league in all of organized baseball.

It was revived in 1920, when Chambersburg and Hanover rejoined the league, and Waynesboro, PA replaced the Gettysburg franchise, and Frederick replaced Piedmont to bring six clubs in the fold. In 1929, several Major League baseball clubs affiliated with the league, including the Cleveland Indians (Frederick), New York Yankees (Chambersburg), St. Louis Cardinals (Waynesboro, PA) and Philadelphia Athletics (Martinsburg). During that period, the league champ played the champions of the Eastern Shore League in the very popular "Five-State Series" that lasted from 1922 to 1927. After the stock market crash of 1929, only four clubs returned for the 1930 season, with Martinsburg and Hanover bowing out. The league disbanded for good after the 1930 season, when three of the remaining four Major League-owned clubs took heavy financial losses, and dropped their affiliations. Hagerstown was the only city to compete for the full 15 years of the league's existence.

Among the players who played in this league include Hall of Famers Robert "Lefty" Grove, "Hack" Wilson, and umpire Bill McGowan. Other players include Jimmy Dykes, Bill Sherdel, Lu Blue, Marvin Goodwin, Hank Thormahlen, Clyde Barnhart, Johnny Neun, Rollie Hemsley, Joe Vosmik, "Babe" Phelps, and Roger "Doc" Cramer.

Another Blue Ridge League got its start in 1946 and lasted five seasons. This one was located in Virginia and North Carolina and had between 4 and 6 members. It too was rated as a D-level league. Galax, VA, Mount Airy, NC, and Radford, VA competed in all five years of this run.
