    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.

    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.
