As I stated in an earlier post, my father Walter J. Porter and my dad's friend Henry Hodge, both attended Vashon in the middle half of the 1940's. I took every opportunity I had to imagine while exploring the campus, what it must have been like when my kin folks had attended.
I discovered the National Negro Baseball Field of St. Louis. This field was the 1st original field that the St. Louis Stars played on. They played in the years 1920-1931. As I looked upon the field, I wondered if the youth of Vashon High School may have played on this field.
