This picture was made possibly in 1944 of what may have been one of the largest crowds to see a baseball game at Capaha Park in Cape Girardeau. It was when the St. Louis Browns held their spring training in Cape Girardeau. The Browns were playing their minor league affiliate, the Toledo Mud Hens. The Browns trained here 1943-45 and the Mud Hens were here 1944-45. (G.D.
