The baseball team
The Norfolk State Prison Colony fielded a baseball team that played against other local town teams.
Boxing matches were also held on occasion. Winslow recalls one time a boxing ring was set up outside one of the cellblock dormitories.
“It was a slug fest,” said Winslow, “Tensions run rather high in prison on occasion. It was a way to relieve frustration. They used big fat boxing gloves, so they wouldn’t kill each other.”
