Who Were The Ballston Skulls?
The Ballston Skulls sounds like a gang. They weren’t.
The Skulls played semi-pro football representing the village of Ballston. They played and practiced on a field, known as Ballston Stadium, at Ball’s Crossroads, currently the site of Ballston Common Mall. In 1937, when the Redskins moved here from Boston, the team worked out at the Ballston facility with the Skulls.
Sadly, we haven’t been able to dig up any old photos of the team or their field. So, if you know of any, please send them our way.
