      Hi guys,

      A semi-pro baseball team is coming to Amsterdam. The former 'Schenectady
      a team comprised of college age, major league prospects will be playing at
      Shutleworth Park. Shutleworth Park is the site of the old baseball diamond
      that occupied
      'Jollyland' and 'Mohawk Mills' parks. That is where the old Amsterdam
      Rugmakers played.
      This was a team that was owned by the FJ&G railroad. Not really railroad
      news, but
      I know some people on the list are interested in the FJ&G's connection with
      the local
      ball clubs. The former Amsterdam team played against the teams from
      Johnstown &
      Gloversville. The FJG's Hagaman Trolley Line went right through Mohawk
      Mills Park...
