    1959 San Francisco Giants Team
    1959 Giants Team Stats
    Here's the 1959 Giants in full color, but without the eventual NL Rookie of the Year Willie McCovey. He didn't play his first game until July 30th that season, when he had one of the most memorable debuts in MLB history by going 4-4 with 2 triples vs. Phillies pitching great Robin Roberts (Box Score 7/30/59: SFG 7 - PHIL 2).

On the ground in front of Gehrig are some of the gifts given Gehrig at the ceremony between games of the New York Yankees-Washington Senators' double header. In the background are members of the Yankee team, while the master of ceremonies (right) presides."

    I wonder if the fans were buzzing about the liberation of Caen...

    I think they mostly tried to not think about the war at the ballpark.

    1929 Louisville Colonels Team
    1929 Colonels Team Stats
    There were quite a few past/future MLB players on the '29 Colonels, including HOF'er Billy Herman. I'm not 100% sure if he's in this picture or not, so does anybody want to try to ID him (or exclude him)?

    The 4th player from the right front row resembles Billy Herman the best.

    I would have to agree, he looks young enough to be Billy in 1929 (about 20 yrs old).

    1924 Cardinals Team Stats
    Here's the last of the composite panoramics that I made by joining two pages from the “1924 Tomás Gutierrez Cuban Cigars Major League Album”. This squad was led by Rogers Hornsby and his phenominal .424 BA as well as Mgr. Branch Rickey, who was in his next-to-last year of managing a big league club. Rickey would kick up to the Cardinals front office in mid-1925 where he fully developed their minor league system, helping the team win their first 4 World Championships. After the 1942 season, he took over as President & GM of the Brooklyn Dodgers where he solidified his increasingly legendary career by signing Jackie Robinson in 1945.
    (#1904)

    I've been going through the images on my computer and noticed something. The shot of Branch Rickey is a Conlon photo from 1914, in a Browns uniform!

    Here's a new edit/colorization I made from a game between the New York Giants & Chicago Cubs, 110 years ago today, on a sunny Saturday afternoon in Chicago.
    You can find the original photo at the LOC here: "National League Park, Chicago, July 23rd, 1904". Cheers! ~B
