Let’s play ball!

Robert Jackson, left, and John “Chipper” Williams pose in their Little League uniforms in 1958 or 1959. Robert played for the Giants, and Chipper played for the Cubs.

The boys lived with their families at Brownsburg. They rode their bikes into Marlinton for practice and for games. The ride down Airport Hill was fun, but the return trip was less so, especially if that uphill climb came on the tail end of a loss on the diamond. Photo courtesy of Barbara Jackson Campbell
