Good Mornin’! Good Mornin’!
I’ve only been to Parchman in uniform. Back in the 1970s our Little League baseball division consisted of Isola, Inverness, Moorhead, Sunflower and Parchman.
Yes, Parchman had a team and we’d drive up, wave at the shotgun toting guards from my momma’s station wagon, cross the railroad tracks and then put on our best Mickey Mantle and Jack Reed impersonations.
We actually went in the women’s barracks and bought post-game Nabs and Cokes. I don’t remember if we won but I reckon being able to leave after visiting for a few hours was a reward.
