The Hudson Mohawk Rubber Company, now out of business, was a major sponsor of area baseball beginning in the early 1900’s in the great Industrial League that flourished for over 20 years and was forerunner to the A-AA leagues. Mowhawk had two title teams and many highly competitive squads in those early years and came back under the guidance of general manager Ernie Zielasko to be a strong competitive force in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
