Welcome to a site dedicated to the history of Minor League Baseball in Ottumwa, IA.  Many Ottumwans are unaware of the fact that Ottumwa was once home to pro baseball.  For 20 seasons in the early 20th century pro baseball was played in Ottumwa.  There was even a future Hall of Famer who played for Ottumwa.  Please read on to find out more.  Check out the leagues, teams, records, and various players who played in Ottumwa.  This site is a work in progress, so be sure to come back.  Make sure you check out the guestbook below and let me know about your visit.
