Another photo of Blakely Field
Barbara was born in the house in the lower center. It has since been torn down. "I didn't tear it down"

Thank you Lewis. The Blakely name is one of Welch's most famous. They did a lot for the town. I was small, but I do remember Mayor Blakely. Thank you for checking out my site. I will add some more pictures soon. I have been lazy. :-)

Thank you for sharing the wonderful memories of Welch. My late father, William T. (Tug) Blakely, who played baseball at Welch HS and received a baseball scholarship to WVU, would be proud - as would my late uncle, John Blakely, former mayor of Welch and for whom Blakely Field was named.

Mary Ellen I remember you. You had a brother Tommy. So good to hear from you. You were a cute little very blond girl.

You can see why we got a lot of "home run" balls in our yard.
