The community of Zurette was located about seven miles northeast of the town of May, Texas. Like many of those old communities, Zurette had a baseball team. You will notice the large Z on several of the sweaters of the young men who comprised this 1900 team. According to notes on the old picture, this team owned only two gloves, one ball, and one bat. Quite a change from today, isn’t it?
