    Nap Lajoie, 1903
    I had previously posted this (#76) with a date of 1905, because that was the date of the newspaper that I had found it in. I've just found the same picture in The Chicago Tribune of March 8, 1903, with a caption explaining that Lajoie was recovering from pleurisy. I had thought that he was smoking a pipe, but in this picture it is clear that it is either a water pipe (a hookah) or more likely oxygen therapy.

    Grubb appeared in just one major league game, on September 27, 1912. He made one putout at third base and he had one plate appearance--he was hit by a pitch.

    Addie Joss, probably 1902

    1902 Joss 2.jpg

    The 1901 Bronchos had home and away uniforms with "CLEVELAND" on the chest, according to the "Dressed to the Nines" uniform database of the Baseball Hall of Fame, but Joss wasn't with the team that season. From 1902 (his rookie season) through 1904, the team had home uniforms with just a "C" or no letter at all, and dark blue road uniforms with "CLEVELAND". From 1905 through the end of Joss's career, the home uniforms had a "C" on the chest, but the road uniforms had "CLEVELAND". However, the 1905, 1906, and 1908 road uniforms had blue collars. The collars on the 1907, 1909, and 1910 road uniforms were not blue, but the size of the letters on the 1907 uniforms was somewhat larger than on the uniform that Joss is wearing in this photo, and the style of the letters differed on the 1909 and 1910 uniforms. Also, Joss appears to be young in this image, so I conclude that this portrait was taken during spring training of 1902, and that Joss had been given a 1901 uniform to wear in advance of the 1902 uniforms becoming available to the team on Opening Day of that year.
