    • 1882 Metropolitan Baseball Nine (NY)
      I love this picture, but I'm not quite sure about the history of this team. I did find a team with this name that played in the Amer.Assoc. from 1883-87. Could this be that team before the league formed in 1883?

      The caption also says: "A woodcut of the 1882 New York Mets, the year before they joined the American Association. Destined to be the team's greatest AA stars - though not with the Mets - were O'Neill and Reilly. Destined to have the most tormented life was Larkin, who shot his wife in 1883 and then tried to end it all by slitting his throat. Eleven years later, in a second suicide attempt, he succeeded."

      • 1885 National Base Ball Club of Washington, D.C.
        Here's another great team picture that is also confusing. I find no record of a Washington Nationals team in the Amer.Assoc. in 1885, but there is one for 1884 that has Barr & Gladman on it. Thoughts?

        That's Hank O'Day, the fututre umpire, in the bottom right corner. The Baseball Encyclopedia lists him as being on Washington in the National League for the season 1886. So maybe this is the team the year before it was admitted into the National League.

        • 1930 Homestead Grays Team
          Spring Training, March 30, 1930

          Here's a little information on that 1930 Homestead Grays photo from the Negro League Baseball Players Association:

          "This team includes Cum Posey (top row far right), Hall of Fame player-manager Judy Johnson (top, second from right), Smokey Joe Willliams (top, fourth from right) and Oscar Charleston (bottom row far right). Also included is Bennie Charleston (first row, second from right) Oscar's brother, in the only year he played in the Negro Leagues. Credit in the lower right identifies the photographer as Harrison of Hot Springs Arkansas. This photo was taken while the Grays were in Spring Training in 1930. This team defeated the Lincoln Giants in a 10-game playoff for the Eastern championship."

          Josh Gibson and Ted "Double-Duty" Radcliffe joined the Homestead Grays in 1931 and many consider that to be the best Negro League team of all-time.
          Top Row L-R: Charlie Walker Jr., Raymond "Mo" Harris, William Ross, Buck Ewing, Smokey Joe Williams, George Scales, Judy Johnson, Cum Posey.

          Bottom Row L-R: Vic Harris, Jake Stephens, Oscar Owens, Lefty Williams, George Britt, Bennie Charleston, Oscar Charleston.

              • Mickey Mantle Day - September 18, 1965
                A great picture from the 1st MM Day. The other was on June 8, 1969 when they retired his No.7
                In the background is Mickey's wife Merlyn, one of his sons and Bobby Kennedy.

                  • (Lefty) Tyler Day, Boston National League Grounds. Sept. 30th 1913
                    I don't have a lot of details about this panoramic, but what a great picture it is! Obviously, this picture was taken outside the ballpark on the special day held for "Lefty" George Albert Tyler, who was one of the main three pitchers the following year on the World Championship 1914 (Miracle) Boston Braves team. Cheers! ~B

                        It appears that Nellie stuck second base in his cheek, too.
                        :cap:
                        Great photo!

                        Seeing Nellie made me think of "Jungle" Jim Rivera in "Where Have You Gone, Vince DiMaggio?" Jim was just another working stiff at the time of his interview, and he's shown staring forlornly out of his apartment window in the photo accompanying it. Jim spoke at length about how much he missed his great friend Nellie, who had died before he reached 50. Jim didn't seem like a guy who just sat around feeling sorry for himself, just one whose glory days were long past and didn't even have his best friend from that time around to reminisce with. Very poignant portrayal.

                          • Gehrig watches Crosetti cross the plate - Fenway Park, Boston - 1936
                            Here's a great/large/pristine picture of Frank Crosetti scoring against the Red Sox in 1936. None other than Lou Gehrig looking on with two bats in his left hand. That's the infamous Moe Berg catching for the Red Sox. I don't know the umpire though...

                              What can I say about this classic picture...there will never be another Billy Martin, Mickey Mantle or Yankee Stadium. Well, there will be another Yankee Stadium...but it won't be the same.

                              • St. Louis Cardinals Team - Spring Training - 1930's
                                I don't have any specifics for this great photo. In fact, when I found it, it was attributed as simply being a baseball team from the 1920's. Obviously it's the Cardinals (unis)...and obviously that is Dizzy Dean standing two places to the left of the man with the suit & tophat (on the bridge). I would take a guess that this is a spring training photo originating from Hot Springs, Arkansas. It was in pretty bad shape when I found it...so I brought it back to life as much as possible. Cheers! ~B

If you notice the guy in the top left, with his arms crossed and his cap on the side of his head? Only one guy ever wore his cap in such a silly fashion, and that was Sunny Jim Bottomley. Sure enough, Jim was on the team 1930-32. But Dean was not on the 1931 team. Right below Bottomley sits Frankie Frisch. Standing between Bottomley and the gentleman in the 10-gallon hat is manager, Gabby Street. Below Frisch looks a lot like Pepper Martin.
