    Anyone with information or photos of late 19th century, early twentieth century baseball, particularly Negro league, in Jacksonville, Florida?

    Have you read any Jacksonville newspapers from 1880 to 1920 at the library or via Interlibrary Loan? I would think the city had quite a few daily papers that covered baseball during that time period. The Jacksonville historical society can probably help you too.

      A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

        If you are still looking http://www.digitalballparks.com is doing a piece right now on this. Very confusing the various ballparks that were used and which teams played at which ballparks. If you have any information maybe you could help. Check out Jacksonville Dixieland Park (photos from Shoeless Joe Jackson's first professional game) at Digitalballparks
