History

Silverton Red Sox

This Silverton Red Sox mural is located on the Ace Hardware wall near C and James Streets and was painted in honor of the golden age of baseball in Silverton that lasted 18 years.

Between 1937 and 1954 Silverton residents eagerly supported their semi-pro baseball team, the Red Sox, and would regularly fills the stands at McGinnis Field to watch them play. Part of the Oregon State Semi-pro League that covered the entire Willamette Valley, The Red Sox fielded six championship teams out of the 12 years they participated. One year they were even rated third and placed nationally after placing in the national semi-pro tournament in Kansas. This mural was painted by artist Kelly Farrah in 1999.
