Thread: Deadball Era New Jersey minor league teams

    Deadball Era New Jersey minor league teams

    Prior to the exodus of the 1960's, '70's, and early '80's (which temporarily left the state with no professional teams), a number of minor league teams made their home in the Garden State. I am posting here photos of the teams and a few individual players from the Deadball Era (pre-1920).

    1907 Jersey City composite.jpeg

    Players Lake and Whiting in this composite have been misidentified as each other. See the next post for the solo portrait of Joe Lake and another composite using the same photos, but with the IDs reversed.

    McAllister had played on the dreadful 1899 Cleveland Spiders and other major league teams between 1896 and 1903, and then continued in the minors through the 1915 season.
