Baseball fans took steamer across lake

This week on the Sandusky History blog, a reminder that people have been taking boat rides across the lake to go to baseball games for a century.

One of those boats was a steamer that traveled to Detroit to see the Tigers play Philadelphia.

"Notes in our historical files indicate that the Frank E. Kirby traveled between Detroit and Sandusky, with stops at Kelleys Island, Put-in-Bay, and Middle Bass Island, until the end of 1919."
