The Evangeline League was born during the WPA days of the depression. The ballparks in this league represented the cities of the Bayou which had now come together to form a Class D Minor League organization (Class C after 1949)... officially recognizing Louisiana as a hub for Minor League Baseball. These local Bayou towns all sported their own beautiful ballparks, many made simply of wood. Few of these ballparks are still standing today though Crowley, Lake Charles and of course Alexandria all still give us a wonderful glimpse into the world of Minor League Baseball that once thrived here in the parishes. The Evangeline League would highlight that talents of Louisiana for 21 years. The Alexandria Aces are the only team which appeared in every season.
