I don't remember exactly what his role was, but he had some connection to one of the gambling factions that attempted to bribe the Sox. I think he was some sort of "go-between." Gene Carney had information on him in his book, Burying the Black Sox. I also remember it was thought "Maharg" was actually an alias for his realy name, which was Graham ("Graham" spelled backwards was "Maharg").
    Thanks, Gary. Good call on Billy Maharg, just got done reading about him. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Very, very nice thread, Don. I love these pristine, exquisitely-clear images. Makes our baseball culture look so current, as if they were taken recently. This creates that delightful illusion that the past is still with us, via these bridges to our cultural past. I am especially impressed when someone can get the non-players names when they are not provided for in a listing.

    Nice job. Well done, Don! A most worthy addition to this forum, along with Gary's Boston Public Library Baseball Project.

    This forum is making some really nice progress here.

    The Story of Nick Altrock

    I hope this photo of Nick Altrock doesn't scare anyone.
    Love the up close and personal photo, but wasn't Altrock better known for his comic antics than his playing?

    I wouldn't label Hal Chase as a utility player. In his 39 games with the Yankees in 1913 (before being traded to the White Sox), he played 29 games at first base, 5 in the outfield and 5 at second base (despite being left-handed!). He was their primary first baseman until the trade.

    American League's 50th Anniversay celebrated at Fenway Park in Boston on May 15, 1951. This photo was taken on the state house steps in Boston. 31 of the 36 living players, managers and umpires from the first year(1901) were there.
    Ted Williams hit his 300th home run and Nellie Fox hit is 1st big league home run in the real game of Red Sox vs the White Sox on May 15 at Fenway.

    I saw a grainy photo of "Maharg" in a Black Sox book years ago, for some reason it stuck in my head and it definitely looked very much like the man in the photo above. I also seem to remember that Maharg/Graham was a boxer at some point, like Abe "The Little Champ" Attell.

    I also noticed a "Van Burkleo" in the Copper Kings photo, wasn't there a well hyped prospect by that name 10-20 years ago?

    Also, isn't #8 in the '51 Boston photo above Nap Lajoie?

    No, Nap Lajoie, Bill Clingham, Jim Jack, John Katoll and Gus Weyhing were the players that were not there.

    The ones that there.
