Inscription. The Lake Shore Ball Park was located in the present-day Point Picnic Area. The company-sponsored ball club hosted, and sometimes trounced, its rivals here. The May 1909 issue of the Port Washington Star tells of one game in which the mighty Lake Shores "humbled" the team from C.G. & Co., an area foundry, 13 to 1. "Zolendeck, the local slab artist, was in fine form striking out 15 men and allowing only six hits, being very effective with men on bases."
