Baseball fever, however, was nothing new to Portage County. As early as area communities were becoming involved in state-wide organized baseball leagues. From the State Baseball League of the early s to today's Badger Amateur Baseball Association BABA , area players have always had the opportunity to compete in baseball well after their high school and college playing days were over. These days, recreational baseball is at a low tide in popularity on the adult level, with more athletes choosing to be involved in softball, golf, volleyball and other recreational sports. But during a period from the s through the s, baseball was not only the country's national past time, it was just about the only game in town. In , not fewer than seven different leagues were flourishing that involved teams from Portage County. Three became particularly popular: the Central Wisconsin Amateur Baseball Association, Wisconsin Valley League and the Portage County League, which ultimately developed into the most competitive and long running league of the bunch.
