This black and white photograph shows the 1952 players on the Bunker Hill Baseball Team. Home games were played on the Brownson baseball field that was located seven miles west of Sidney, Nebraska. The players on this team came from five different precincts: Bunker Hill, Potter, Gurley, Dalton, and Brownson.

This week’s photograph is published and owned by the Cheyenne County Historical Society and Museum. Items in this collection represent the people and places of Sidney, Fort Sidney, Potter, Dalton, and other communities and sites in the county.
