Lafayette White Sox Baseball Team. Material, 1937
The Evangeline League (Lafayette White Sox) began in 1934 as a 6-team class D league in and around Louisiana. Its name comes from the Acadian legendary heroine Evangéline, made famous through a poem of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The league quickly expanded to 8 teams and lasted until World War II, when it shut down from 1943 to 1945.
