The Hannibal Cavemen is a team of the 11 team Prospect Collegiate League. The schedule for the league is 60 games long begins in early June and ends the first week of August. The league uses wooden bats. The Cavemen play at Samuel Clemens Field. The field is raised three feet above the outside area to protect it from flooding. The Cavemen were playing the Terra Haute Rex winning 5-1. The box score was Rex R-1, H-7, E-1 and Cavemen R-5, H-12, E-0. The field lines were CF-390, LC-376, LC-342, not 3rd baseline measurement and no measurements show for right field. The scoreboard has been updated to video board from the manual score board that we saw in 2011. The announcing area is on the third baseline at field level. The radio announcers sit in two areas within the grandstand. Towards the 3rd baseline is the Hannibal's announcer and towards the 1st baseline is the visitor's announcer. A train track is out side of the 1st baseline. There are 3 suites on each baseline. We didn't see a mascot on this trip. Don't park in the asphalt parking lot on the 3rd baseline as it is the target for many foul balls. Jim would like to thank Owen, a young fan, for giving him a Prospect League baseball to add to his collection of league baseballs. Depending on the source the park was used as as POW camp for Japanese or German POWs during WWI.
