Younger generations may not know it, but Hopkinsville has a rich history when it comes to America’s favorite pastime. The Hoptown Hoppers borrowed their name from a minor league team that played decades ago in the now-disbanded “Kitty” League. Although the original Hoppers were a true “minor” league franchise, today’s Hoppers are part of the Ohio Valley League – a summer collegiate wood bat baseball league. Players come from their colleges and universities all across the country to sharpen their baseball skills during the OVL season.
