Hillside Baseball Team


Hillside Baseball Team


A baseball team near Forest Grove, Oregon circa 1910-1914; probably in the Hillside neighborhood. The field appears to be located near the intersection of Hillside and Clapshaw Hill Roads, looking west towards the hills. The men are wearing uniforms with the logo "HT". Baseballs, bats, mitts, and a catcher's mask are visible in the image. A barn and fencing stand in the background.
This is one image from a set of glass plate negatives created by William Alonso Clapshaw. Clapshaw was a clerk and shopkeeper who lived near Forest Grove, Oregon for most of his life. He was born in 1880, probably at the family's home in the Hillside neighborhood of Forest Grove, on what is now Clapshaw Hill Road east of Gales Creek. Around 1910-1914, William took an interest in photography and created a set of glass plate negatives documenting scenes near his family's lands as well as images of himself, his friends and family members. He most likely used a silver gelatin dry plate process. The photographs were donated to the Pacific University Archives in 2023.
