Baseball has been an important pastime in Lenoir County dating back to the early 1900’s. Kinston has hosted farm clubs for 11 different major league franchises and one minor league club in its history. Professional baseball dates back to the 1908 team in the Eastern Carolina League. Kinston is also well known for breaking the color barrier by Carl Long entering into the Carolina League back in 1956. We at F3-Kinston feel like baseball has long been a part of bringing men together to build the same unity we have here at F3. Most recently, we are the home of the Down East Wood Ducks, a class A affiliate of the Texas Rangers. To honor the traditions of Lenoir County and Kinston baseball we name this award after the Wood Ducks Mascot DEWD aka Woody.
