During the first two thirds of the Twentieth Century, Port Royal had a rich heritage of Baseball Teams. Usually these teams would play opposing teams from Juniata, Perry or Dauphin Counties. This baseball heritage produced one major league player from Port Royal, Fred Frankhouse (Cardinals, Dodgers & Braves) and one from Newport, Billy Cox (Dodgers, Pirates, Orioles).
