Lamar Porter Field


Yakker is pleased to present Lamar Porter Field and Memories of Sports in Little Rock during the 1950’s by Norris Guinn and Willis Callaway.

In the forward, Guinn states, “This book is a combined effort by two boys growing up at Lamar Porter Field in the 1940’s and 1950’s and then fifty years later trying to remember the wonderful times they experienced together.”

Offering a rich mix of history and memoir, this self-published book is unique glimpse into the nostalgic mid-twentieth century baseball scene in Little Rock. I’m excited to help preserve this resource by offering Yakker as the book’s digital home.

Much thanks to Willis Callaway for permission to republish this work, as well as to my uncle Jim Hardwick for getting Willis and I connected.
