More than a Market
Danis’s Market Content Block 5
Baseball was a favorite pastime in Lakeside. On summer nights, porches overflowed with spectators as the Lakeside 9, a team organized by the Queen City Cotton Company, played against local teams sponsored by businesses like the American Woolen Mills in Winooski and the Wells-Richardson Company in Burlington. Danis men featured prominently on the team rosters for decades. In 1928 the team played, and lost, a highly anticipated game against Chappie Johnson’s All-Stars of Montreal.
