Notes:
The Lebanon Valley (Pennsylvania) Baseball League was started in 1931 and was amateur through 1934. The players were paid in 1935 but the League folded in 1939 because the teams could not meet their payrolls. The League was reorganized in 1941 on a strict amateur basis. Because of World War II, the League was idle 1943-1945. From 1946-1963 the League played every summer season.
Ray Darnbach, Richland, Pennsylvania, a trucker in Lebanon, was an officer in the League for at least 25 years. Apparently he kept the scrapbooks of League games and events, 1936-1961.
