Click Here To See Full-Sized (1200 x 603)
There's very little info about this squad on BB-Ref, except for Smead Jolley who later batted .305 in a short 4 year major league career. Smead actually seemed to prefer the minor leagues where he managed to collect 3,043 hits and a .367 BA in 16 seasons. Maybe he would have been a Hall Of Famer had he chosen to play in the big leagues...we'll never know. What we do know is that he was a truly terrible fielder, so maybe that was a factor as well in the days before the DH.

So here's a pic that I've been working on for a while now: a new and improved, very large scale version of the '09 Reds. You'll want to click on the link to see it larger for sure. There's quite a variety of uniforms, caps and sweaters to behold...including the player in the back row on the right with a "W" on his sweater. Next to him is a crudely cut/pasted (literally) Miller Huggins, but hey...they didn't exactly have Photoshop way back in 1909. Cheers! ~B
