Fortunately not everyone had forgotten Gus Thompson. An article in the Daily Inter Lake on October 5, 1913, reminded the community of Thompson’s career and his contributions to the sport. He was the first Montanan (although a later transplant) to play not only in a World Series, but the FIRST World Series. He died in 1958 and is buried in the Conrad Memorial Cemetery.
P.S. Remember this baseball team?
