History of NWFALL

In 1963, interested individuals from Mt. Tabor and Old Town joined forces in northwestern Forsyth County to play organized baseball.  With the financial support of the Mt. Tabor Civic club, eight teams (four major and four minor) began playing at the Mt. Tabor Civic Club Field.  Two teams in each league were from the Mt. Tabor and Old Town Communities.  At the conclusion of 1963, it was decided to become a part of Little League Baseball.  On June 10, 1964, Northwest Forsyth American Little League became an official chartered member of Little League Baseball.

The Charter Board Members (1964) and offices they held were:

President, Fred D. Hauser

Vice-President, A. H. Lescault

Secretary, Joe H. Lowry

Treasurer, R.T. McClaren

Player’s Agent, L.L. Orrell

Chairman, Minor League, Woodrow W. Jennings

Chairman, Facilities and Equipment, Coy M. Park

Chairman, Public Relations, Fred A. Hager

Chairman, sponsoring, Ed J. Jeziorski

The original boundaries of NWFALL were defined and included:  the Yadkin River, Stokes County boundary line, New Highway 2, Cherry-Marshall Streets, Old town country club, Silas Creek Parkway, and Robinhood Road to the Yadkin River following the southern boundary of Speas and Vienna School districts. 

In 1965, the senior program began with four teams and played at Mt. Tabor High School.  The league constructed and installed the fencing, dugouts and bleachers.

Bowen field was built and used by the new Major/Minor division when an agreement to use land of Shattalon Drive was made between Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Bowen and NWFALL.  In 1967, the Major-Minor Division expanded its program into three leagues with games played at Speas School, Bowen and Mt. Tabor Civic club fields.  The League continued to grow and fielded its first Big League team in 1968.  Johnson Field was completed in 1969 and for the first time, the Majors - Minors had its own field.

In 1971, the West Central Community Center made a substantial donation in support of ball field development.  The NWFALL Board of Directors and the WCCC entered into an agreement to use the WCCC field for five years.  A committee was appointed to evaluate the feasibility of developing Johnson Field into a Little League complex.  The recommendation was against the development of this location due to flood control problems.

A land search committee was formed in 1972 to locate suitable land to develop a baseball complex.  After numerous investigations of properties and negotiations, it was approved by the Board of Directors to purchase 15.5 acres of land located off Conrad Sawmill road on August 16, 1973.  A capital fund drive was launched in 1974 to raise $60,000 for four fields, a field house, and parking facilities.  By mid-1974, $50,000 in pledges was obtained and construction began that fall.

On April 26, 1975, the Northwest Forsyth American Little League complex was dedicated.  At long-last NWFALL had three major/minor fields, one senior/big field, a field house with a concession stand, restrooms, equipment storage, a meeting room and 200 parking spaces.

A Senior Girls Softball Program was launched in 1975 by joining with three teams in the Southwest Forsyth Little League.  In 1975, NWFALL won its first state championship in Senior Baseball winning the title game in King. 

In 1980, lights were added to the Big League field.

In 1983, six girls softball teams were added for ages 9-15 with a new softball field added for this program.  The equipment room addition was added to the field house.

In 1984, 5 tee ball teams and a tee ball field were added to the program.  In 1985, the concession stand was enlarged.  In 1986, a new tractor and tractor shed were added to the complex.  In 1987-88, grass infields for Major and Senior fields were installed.

Since 1975 several ongoing improvements have been made to our complex.  It has grown to 7 fields and a batting cage.  It is owned and operated by NWFALL which is fully incorporated. 
The 2014 season marks our 50th year as a chartered Little League.  The League offers baseball and softball for children ages 5-16.  NWFALL continues to be a non-profit organization managed by volunteers, parents, alumni and friends.
