This shot of the Clay City baseball team was taken probably between 1907 and 1914. Up until I found this postcard, I wasn’t even aware Clay City had a baseball team. But it was a time when baseball was hugely popular and many companies had teams. The National Loggers even had a baseball team.
Clay City is no longer around. All that remains is a slab way back in the woods where the kilns once stood.
