At the turn of the 20th century, Stamford was fast becoming an industrial powerhouse, quickly earning its nickname of "The City That Works." As manufacturing boomed and drew thousands of immigrants to the city, sports clubs formed at an equally rapid pace. Stamford's large and thriving industrial league provided a means for those working six-day weeks to let off steam productively and enjoyably. Stamford Sports covers the history of sports in Stamford from its earliest baseball and basketball teams in the 1890s through the burgeoning of sports of all types for everyone, brought on by the passage of Title IX in the 1970s.
