The Union City Greyhounds played in the KItty League from 1935-55 when the league ceased to operate. The last three years they were known as the Dodgers and were a class D farm club of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Other major league affiliations were with the St. Louis Cardinals. Cincinnati Reds, and the Cleveland Indians. If you have materials or memories involving the Union City team, former players, Turner Field,or the Kitty League, you would like to share,
email me below. The Kitty League was reformed in June 2005 as a Wooden Bat League. There were four teams. It will begin it's second season of operation in June, 2006.
A season league pass signed by Kitty League President Shelby Peace of Hopkinsville was given to Union City Greyhound club officer, Dave Knox for the 1942 league season. Mr. Knox only got to use the pass until late June when the league was disbanded because of WWII. It restarted in 1946.
