Here's a huge new composite of the 1929-30 A's. Oddly the poster calls them the "American League Champions" (which is true). You'd think they'd rather mention that they were the "World Champions" because of their winning the 1929-30 World Series.

Fenway Park Grand Opening - April 20, 1912
In Honor of 100 Years...
Today marks the 100th Anniversary of Boston's beloved ballpark. I've been lucky enough to have been there on more than a dozen occasions, including Game 3 of the 1986 World Series. Cheers to Fenway!

Just discovered this thread. Incredible photos, a window into history of the great game. I think a lot of the history, events and triumphs of the game's past is lost on many of the fans today. I was always aware of depth of history but never knew much about the details. It is something I've gained a lot more interest in as of late and the learning and research of the game's past has quickly become a big hobby of mine.

Thanks txranger..and welcome to BBF. If you're getting into the history of the game then you've come to the right site.

1920 Detroit Wolverines Team
I couldn't find any info about this team specifically, but it seems like they could have been part of an organized Negro League. Perhaps they played against or are related to some of the teams listed at Seamheads.com here: Negro League Organizations 1902-23. In any case, it's a great photo and I really like their uniforms. Anybody know more?
