Ballfields and Arenas - the early days of sports in Delaware County
Brent Carson
10/9/2023 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Schools are in session and the fall sports season is well under way. Brent Carson will lead us through an intriguing evening of how the early sports developed in Delaware County. Topics range from the first Ohio State football game played along a creek in Delaware, to the high school rivalries in football and basketball, and the challenges like playing a football game on a field lit by car headlights, schools which owned only one basketball, and a game delayed while they searched for a rule book.
