Little League's first scoring booth, eventually called the Club House. Constructed in 1943 for the 1944 season, with 2" red fir from the bleachers of Bowman Field. Designed with an 8ft. hinged desk facing the diamond for Mac McCloskey to record the games. The City Park System required the Club House to be dismantled after each season.
