'Last Man In', the third Chronicle documentary, is a look at the story of Baseball in Cardiff - a sport that shares its origins with the American Game - but has very much gone its own way since. Played by the working-class population of Cardiff since the 1880s, it thrived in the early years of the 20th Century and beyond, perhaps reaching a high-water mark in the 1930's which would have continued had it not been for the outbreak of War. The documentary draws on memories of former players, administrators and fans, including international baseballer, Mark Jones, of Grange Albion.
Chronicle is a two-year community heritage project led by Voluntary Community Service (VCS) Cymru and supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Our aim is to collect and gather stories about volunteering and volunteer work in Cardiff from 1914-2014 and make them available to the public.
