    But I should also add that the pitchers who made the jump to the FL most of them did not hang around the majors much longer after the closing of the FL.

    So take from that what you want.

    I think I'll stand by the view that the FL had a negligible to slight bonus for Pete.

        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

          Post #3: This is from a different angle than the one you've got currently, and it looks like it was taken seconds before or after the other, so you could throw it in there right next to it.

            Also, here are a few of my favorite photos of Ol' Pete that aren't shown here yet:

            Sorry for large size, didn't want them to lose any quality. Bill, you can delete these (and any that follow), once you're done with them, whether you decide to include them or not.

                            June 1926 Alexander is suspended by manager Joe McCarthy. He is sent packing to the Cards in that same season, welcomed by Hornsby, gets the job done against the Yanks in the 1926 World Series.

                              Pete was the hero for my cardinals and got us our first world series title in the 1926 World Series at the age of 39 so i thank him for that. It's shame we didnt get him when he was at his best in the 10's because who knows how good both him and the Cardinals would have been.

                                Wow, Pete got old before he was young. Him 'n' Satch were probably about the same age in 1941 but he looks to be about 50 years older.
