Knothole Gang

The Maury Wills Knothole Gang is the official kids club of the F-M RedHawks and is open to all kids 3 to 13 years old

Knothole gangs came about in the early part of the 1920s as professional ballparks were first being built with wooden fences. Kids without a ticket would find that the wooden fences surrounding the parks provided spy holes to watch the games for free. These holes were created when knots in the wood popped out. Naturally, gangs of kids gathered around the knotholes. As a minor league baseball promotion, the Knothole Gang became a special ticket package for children (usually no more than 12–14 years of age) sold in an effort to bring more families out to games. When the RedHawks franchise was started in 1996, team executives decided to honor the term by naming the kids’ club “RedHawks Knothole Gang” and renamed later after the late Dodgers legend and RedHawks announcer Maury Wills.
