This bound volume, entitled Aces: 1966-1973, is one of two written by Topekan Lee Dodson documenting the activities of youth and semi-pro baseball teams that he managed from the late 1960s through 1981. Each of the teams included one or more of his three sons (Jim, Dick and Steve) as participants, whether as player, field manager, coach, or batboy. In this volume are Dodson's annual reports about the Topeka Aces youth teams that competed in the Suburban League (1966-1970). Age brackets for these teams ranged from 8-10 for the youngest team to 14-16 for the oldest. The volume also includes reports on the Topeka Aces teams in the Jayhawk Connie Mack League for 16-18 year-olds (1971 and 1972), and the Aces in the semi-pro Sunflower Stan Musial League (1973). The report on the 1966 team is brief, containing statistics only. All of the other team reports include not only individual player statistics, but detailed narrative accounts of every game played by each team. The companion volume covers the period 1976-1981 (see Kansas Memory ID 309527). Throughout his adult life, Lee Dodson was a leader in Topeka's baseball community who became known as Topeka's ?Mr. Baseball.' A former minor league pitcher, Dodson founded and managed several leagues in Topeka, and managed and/or coached countless teams. Digital reproduction of the volume was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.
