DakotaCast Podcast (Episode #16): Northern League Collector Paul Gertsen

The 1964 Aberdeen Pheasants

Northern League baseball collector and researcher Paul Gertsen joined the program this week to talk about the history of baseball in South Dakota - specifically regarding the Northern League. On Saturday, Gertsen will present "Baseball That Mattered: 25 Years of the Northern League in South Dakota" at the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre, SD.

In 2014, Gertsen donated a large amount of Northern League baseball memorabilia to the South Dakota State Historical Society. The collection is in an exhibit that is still on display today.
