Dedicated to Joseph Carl Oeschger in Recognition of his contribution to sports and to the youth who participate.

An all around athlete who began his career in Ferndale, he went on to professional baseball where he distinguished himself as a major league pitcher for 12 years. On May 1, 1920, he set a record never equaled by pitching the longest game ever played. He, and the opposing pitcher, pitched a full 26 innings before the game was called because of darkness.
