The Angelina County Historical Commission had a historic guest speaker at Monday's meeting.
Ruben "Jelly" Samuel talked about his days as a star athlete. Samuel played baseball in the 1940s. Some of his fondest memories came from his days as a Diboll Dragon. The Dragons were just one of several sawmill teams. Samuel told the crowd how much he misses his days at bat.
Samuel says, "Ooh wee, [those were] the good old days. [It] wasn't much money but we had plenty fun, every time."
