Crumbs from the Cracker Barrell

April 27, 1999

When the doughboys returned to Washington County following World War II, "there was nothing to do on Sundays," recalls Smithsburg resident Bill Smith. "Three or four of us got together and organized the Smithsburg Recreation Club." Three years later in 1949 the Smithsburg team surprised everyone when it won the playoffs in the Washington County League. Teammate Bob Naylor also reflected on the days following the war. "Well, I was just a young fellow out of the service. I got a great big kick out of it. We weren't the best team, but we hung in there!"
