ABOVE: This is an image of the Darrtown semi-pro baseball team that played a three-game series in 1920 that drew over 2,000 people to a ball diamond in a farm field, just south of town. If you like baseball and have not read the story, you may access it at: 1920 Darrtown Baseball.
1944 OXFORD STEWART ATHLETIC TEAMS
The Darrrtown High School closed in 1939. Many students from Darrtown transferred to Oxford Stewart High School.
The following five images belonged to Eugene "Knute" Wagonfield, a Darrtown native and accomplished athlete. "Knute" Wagonfield does not appear in the first two images below, as he was about six years older than the young men in the photographs.
Prior to his death, in July of 2013, Knute listed the names of most of the players on the back of the photographs. In November of 2015, Dale Bufler, another Darrtown native and a member of the two Stewart teams, helped identify the names that Knute did not include.
FRONT ROW: John Woodruff, Walter Watkins, Ennis Miller, Paul Neuenschwander, Dale Bufler, Emmert "Wimpy" Browning, and Charles Wagonfield
SECOND ROW: Jimmy Hansel, Jack Sheard, (unknown), Richard Leichman, (unknown) (unknown) (unknown) and Charlie Bass.
BEHIND SECOND ROW AT THE LEFT: Coach Lawrence "Larry" Bowers
FRONT ROW: Harry Schwegman, Ralph Clark, Charlie Wagonfield, Ambrose Schwegman, Emmert Browning, Dale Bufler, and Jim Hansel.
SECOND ROW: Carl Boomershine, Jack Shear, Charlie Bass, Leon Foster, Dick Leichman, Paul Neuenschwander, Walter Watkins, and Curtis Churchman.
1941 HANOVER BASEBALL TEAMS
The next three images belonged to Eugene "Knute" Wagonfield.
Darrtown boys "Knute" Wagonfield and Warren Hansel, both of whom attended Oxford Stewart HIgh School, are seen in the first two images below; so, it seems unlikely that these are Hanover High school teams. Probably the teams seen in the two following images were summer league teams comprised of players from area schools.
The following images belonged to
Eugene "Knute" Wagonfield,
a Darrtown boy who was a member
of the two teams shown below.
Before his death, in July of 2013,
Knute listed the names of most of the players on the back of the photographs.
In November of 2015,
Dale Bufler, another Darrtown native and a member of the Stewart athletic teams
that played Hanover teams,
helped identify the names
that Knute did not include.
Webmaster Note: A handwritten note that accompanied the above image contained the names the appear at the left.
Webmaster Note: The names that appear on the above image were written with a pen that smeared; thus it is difficult to discern the names on the front of the picture.
(L-R) Tim Hacker and Eugene "Knute" Wagonfield.
The barn and silo in the background, which are still standing in 2015, confirm that this image was taken at the site of the former Hanover school. The school building, since razed, was located in the northeast corner of Ohio State Rt. 130 (Old Oxford Road) and Morman Road intersection - about four miles northwest of Hamilton, Ohio.
