    I just wrote the SABR biography on Jimmie Wilson, one of baseball's unsung heroes, who is pictured in the front row, so I know a little bit about him.

    In 1940, following Hershberger's suicide and an injury to Ernie Lombardi, he was activated from the coaching ranks at the age of 40 during the September pennant race. He went on to become the hero of the 1940 World Series, as he caught the last six games of the seven game Series. He was the hitting star of the Series at .323, had the only stolen base in the entire Series, and laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt in the 7th inning of the decisive 7th game that led to the Reds' Series-winning run.

    Also Jimmie Wilson, while managing the Phillies in 1935, was the one who converted Bucky Walters from a mediocre third baseman into a outstanding pitcher who many think belongs in the Hall of Fame. In an ironic twist of baseball fate, Bucky Walters ended up pitching to his mentor Jimmie Wilson in the 1940 World Series, where they were both lauded as the heroes of the Series.

    Les Scarsella's wife, Ann, did the play-by-play on WCPO for one game that season. The next year the family was driving down to spring training and their car collided with a coal truck. Scarsella and his little daughter survived, but Ann was killed. This is from "The Game That Was", a book about the photographer George Brace of Chicago.

    Most of the historically great talent, regardless of age, is bunched over on the right side of this photo. We see Mel Ott, Honus Wagner, and Stan Musial in the same area. Wagner looks like he can still play a little bit. Dixie Walker is over there to, in the year he won the Batting Title.

    1955 Dallas Eagles with Bill White

    Always been a Bill White fan, so when this came up I purchased it. He also has a good book out that's a good read called Uppity: My Untold Story About The Games People Play.

    Bill White is third player top row.

    It's a great one though. I guess I'll post mine tomorrow.

    1911 New York Highlanders Opening Day at Hilltop Park

    Player behind batting cage with a bat on his shoulder looks like Birdie Cree. The player behind Cree with the warmup jacket facing the cage looks like Russ Ford. And the player in the foreground looks like Bert Daniels.
