The first recorded game of baseball played in Alton was circa 1858. The Louisville Slugger baseball bat was developed by J. Frederich Hillerich in 1859. In 1947, Bill Fisher of Wood River was having trouble securing bats to sell for his sporting goods business. He started the Wood River Wood Products Company.  During its peak in 1947, the factory was turning out more than 1,200 bats daily at its Kane plant.
