PARAGOULD - Has been playing the game for generations .

In 1947 , Paragould had a baseball camp for the St. Louis Browns , that was combed by scouts looking for talent .

Paragould had teams like the Paragould - Rebels that played for The Northeast Arkansas - Missouri League in 1938 .

 

N.E.A. League the circuit was composed of four cities , Jonesboro , Marianna , Paragould and Newport . The league was started as dissoulution of the Arkansas State League . First season started July 26, 1909 .

I will try to create a record of the players from the old newspapers that played on the teams or leagues of Greene County and Northeast Arkansas .
