Mr. Joe Johnson has been a big part of Adair baseball history
(A note: CM has learned that there has been no change in the name of the Joe Johnson Little League Park nor has there been any discussion to do so; there was an unfortunate choice of wording on a sign to the park, not at the park. However, Little League officials, far from being upset for being possibly misread on the issue, are elated at the outpouring of affection for Mr. Johnson. They hope that that will continue and be translated into a more fitting recognition of all this wonderful man, this wonderful Adair Countian, has meant to so many, for so long. We'll have more on those developments, later. -CM)

In reference to the article concerning the name change of the Joe Johnson Little League Ball Park. In 1970 I had the opportunity to start playing Baseball at the ripe age of six.
I remember my mother taking me early so I could be the first player there to meet Mr Johnson at the back of his car at the fairgrounds to try and get the best catcher's gear. He carried all we had to play with in his car trunk.Comments re article 44827 Hunter Durham says Joe Johnson and baseball little league one and same
