Story of ‘Unusual’ Ball FieldComes to Ogallala Library

Hills and Sandlots: The Amazing Story of Rushville’s Modisett Ball Park”
is a recounting of the ball park built by ranchers that went on to host
a nationally famous baseball school, sponsored by the Milwaukee Braves
and New York Yankees, which saw a southpaw from Gering, Nebraska, who
struck out Mickey Mantle. In 2014, the ball park underwent a complete
restoration for the park’s 75th anniversary, in large part funded by a
Nebraska publisher who grew up in Rushville and played at the ball park
as a boy.
“It’s truly incredible for a town of less than 900 people to have such a storied park,” said Barnes, “and even more incredible for the park to be rebuilt for a second 75 years. But it’s a wonderful tale of how the right people in the right community taking the right actions can come together to create a shrine to the great American pastime.”
