Nebraska State League
McCook Generals 1928-1932



As the Nebraska State League restarted in 1928, McCook was one of the leading franchises. The 1928 Generals were managed by Doc Bennett and they easily took the pennant in 1928. They also had the leading attendance in the league with 14,552 fans pushing the turnstiles. I believe they played their games at East Side Ball Park which is now the site of Felling Field. Harlan Pyle from Liberty Nebraska was an all star pitcher for the Generals. Victor Schiell and John Stoneham joined Pyle on the all star team.
