KOM League historian and Carthage native John Hall speaks during a service held Saturday in memory of the baseball players who have died. The KOM League's final reunion wrapped up Saturday with Scottish pipers, an honor guard and the playing of "Taps." Other activities on Saturday included a picnic at Central Park and "The Last Supper" at Souper Sam's at Precious Moments.
