In the 1960s, Area 51 recreational facilities included a gymnasium, movie theater, nine-hole golf course, and a softball diamond. The Area 51 softball team was called the 8-Ballers. "The Bulletin Board," an unclassified newsletter published by REECo for Nevada Test Site employees regularly posted articles about Test Site sporting events. Throughout the 1960s, headlines such as “Area 51 Wins Slow-Pitch Tournament” were common and many of the players were listed by name. Area 51 had a formidable softball team. With players like Harry Martin, Tom Lewis, and “Big Clem” Byzewski, the 8-Ballers crushed such teams as the Area 12 Mets and the Mercury All Stars.
