KATY RAILROAD

In 1870 the first Missouri-Kansas-Texas train rolled into a new town in southeast Kansas, that would become Parsons, and the railroad would be remembered as the Katy!  One-hundred forty-five years later, Parsons celebrates its railroad heritage and town history with the Katy Days Festival.  Renew old friendships, rekindle memories and enjoy three days of food, fun, entertainment  and railroad-related activities, May 22, 23 & 24, 2015 in Parsons, KS.   Memorial Day Weekend.

KATY DAYS VINTAGE BASE BALL 2015

(Be sure and check out the poster)

On Saturday, May 23rd, the Katy Railroad "Golden Spikes" will host the "Howe House Griffins" from Emporia in a Vintage Base Ball Game as part of the annual Katy Days celebration.

Vintage base ball is played with customs and rules used by community base ball clubs of the 19th century.  While some rules are quite different from those used today, such as no overhand pitching, the vintage game gives a fascinating view into the evolution of the modern game.  Players will be in period uniforms, without gloves, and they will use the original terminology and customs of the game.

The baseball game is sponsored by the Labette County Convention and Visitor's Bureau, Katy Days, and the Parsons Baseball Club.
