Here's a new, larger edit of the '22 Giants in a slightly different pose. The original posting can be found here: 1922 Giants (11/22/2010). There just aren't enough hours in the day to remove all the scratches from the original print, but I did manage to remove quite a few. Cheers! ~B

1924 New York Giants Team
1924 Giants Team Stats
Fresh off my editing table, here's an all-new & very large version of the '24 Giants. John McGraw is absent (looks like Hughie Jennings was on managing duty that day). However, notorious owner Charles Stoneham showed up for the picture. I wouldn't be surprised if a version of him made an appearance in the upcoming 3rd season of Boardwalk Empire on HBO. Cheers! ~B

1935 Bismarck Churchills Team
Bismarck Churchills History
Here's a really clean edit I just finished of the great '35 Churchills, a team that Satchel Paige considered one of the best he ever played for.
From Wiki: "The Bismarck Churchills were an integrated semi-professional baseball team based in Bismarck, North Dakota in the 1930s. Led by Satchel Paige, Moose Johnson, and Double Duty Radcliffe, the club won the 1935 national semi-pro baseball tournament in Wichita, Kansas. The Churchills played independently of any league because their mixed race roster was a problem in a period of segregation, and because there were no formal leagues at the semi-professional level in North Dakota in the 1930s. The team was owned by Neil Churchill, a local car dealer who owned the city's Chrysler dealership, and regularly played against Valley City, Jamestown, and other teams across North Dakota and Manitoba. Although the club is recalled as the "Churchills" today, the team was not formally named in the 1930s, as North Dakota newspapers such as the Bismarck Tribune simply referred to the club as the "Bismarcks" in 1935. The team was also referred to as the "Giants" (written on old team photo)."
1935 Bismark Churchhills;
Top Row, L-R: Hilton Smith (P), Red Haley, Barney Morris (P), Satchel Paige (P), Moose Johnson, Quincy Trouppe (C), Double-Duty Radcliffe (P/C).
Bottom Row, L-R: Desiderato, Leary, Neil Churchill (owner/Mgr.), Oberholzer, Hendee.

Ray L. Doan's All Star Faculty Baseball School
Hot Springs, Arkansas, Feb 15th to Mch 15th, 1933
There's a few instructors in the front row who might know a thing or two about playing the game...like Rogers Hornsby, Grover Cleveland "Old Pete" Alexander & George Sisler. Interesting how the photographer used "Mch" as an abbreviation for March, I've never seen that before.

1923-24 Leopardos de Santa Clara Team
Leopardos Season 1923-24
Here's a great pic that I recently found at auction and did some editing on. So much talent on this team, click on the link above to read all about it.
"For 1923/24, the Leopardos loaded up with American Negro league talent. Linares and Molina brought back pitchers Holland, Brown, and Pedroso and added Americans Rube Currie and Merven Ryan, as well as Cuban legend José Méndez, and Pedro Dibut, who had just been signed by the Cincinnati Reds. In the infield, first basemen Oscar Johnson and Eddie Douglass and shortstop Dobie Moore joined the returning second baseman, Warfield, and third baseman, Marcelle. The regular outfielders, Charleston, Oms, and Mesa, were the same as in the previous season, and Esteban Montalvo was the backup outfielder."
1906 Pittsburgh Pirates Team Portrait
1906 Pirates Team Stats
Here's a brand-new, very large edit of the '06 Pirates team. I spent quite a bit of time tweaking it, so I hope you guys enjoy it! It is currently residing as my desktop background (I have a 23" widescreen monitor). I have to wonder though: Is it the 1906 Pirates or not? My sources lead me to say it is, but I know how tricky it can be to correctly date these old Pirates team photos. So, do you like this latest addition...and is it really the '06 team? Cheers! ~B

HOF-Dressed To the Nines site, it looks like the 1902-03 team wore striped shirts under their jerseys. I'll have to dig for a photo of that!
Here's the 1906 Pirates photo with names, if some one wants to check names with BSmile's great looking Pirate Photo.
YOU CAN DELETE THIS AT ANYTIME.

So much for the socks theory and the uniform database which can be wrong at times, I guess.
I don't see Bob Ganley in this photo he played his first game for Pittsburgh September 1, 1905 and played the 1906 season. I also don't see Joe Nealon(could be wrong on this) who played on the 1906 team.
This photo I believe was taken at Spring training. I looked on Ebay and they have it as 1903, 1905 and 1906.
With Ganley and Nealon not in the photo and Heinie Peitz is I'm going with 1905.

Some well known names on this team, none bigger than player/manager Chief Bender who went 25-12 with a 1.94 ERA en route to the 1920 Eastern League Championship. Of course, also of important note is HOF executive George Weiss whom the team is named after. Weiss would later become the Yankees GM (1947-60) as well as the first President and GM of the New York Mets (1961-66).
