Well, perhaps this really isnt trivia, at least not in the eyes of sports historians. In any case it strikes the author as an early barometer of the good old times. Columbia Farm had a baseball team!! They played other teams from boomtowns up and down the valley. The teams name Scoopers was inspirational. In1872 the Scoopers triumphed 21-14 over their rivals across the creek (Tarr Farm). Cant you imagine them in their stripes? Wonder if a catchers mitt still hangs out in an attic somewhere?
