The Man Behind the Building: Lowell Thomas and Baseball

Aside from being a radio and television personality, Thomas was a sportsman himself. He enjoyed skiing throughout his travels and assisted in the development of ski resorts in both Vermont and the Adirondacks. However, his true athletic passion lied in baseball. Not only was he an avid player, but he also managed men’s softball clubs and constructed a softball diamond on his property in Pawling, N.Y.
