I took this picture of Spook Jacobs back around 2000-2001. He had come to the annual St. Louis Browns alumni & fans banquet in St. Louis in the company of Ronnie Joyner and Bill Bozman, the artists who have done a lot of work for several of the old original franchise clubs. My memories of Spook go back to watching him play 2nd base for Max Macon's 1953 Fort Worth Cats in the Texas League. Spook hit .282 with 40 RBI in the leadoff spot for the Cats that year. Never known for his bat-pop, Spook had 0 HRs for Fort Worth in 1953, but he was a pest on the bases and a scrappy fielder.
