  • 1902 St Cloud Baseball Team

    One Frank Thielman played for the 1902 St Cloud Baseball team. My question is: Did he have two brothers that made it to the big league. Both Henry and Jake Thielman played in the majors and both were born in St Cloud. This ball team was a minor league team in the "Northern League".

    Henry Thielman played only 2 years in the majors. 1902 with the NY Giants & the Cincinnati Reds. 1903 with Brooklyn. Career pitching record 8-19 with a 3.37 era.

    Jake Thielman played 4 yrs. 2 yrs with the Cardinals and 2 years with the Indians and Red Sox. His career pitching record was 30-28 with a 3.16 era.

      From the Northern League site:

      9-46: The league selected it's All Star team: Tony Jaros (1b); Ross Horning (2b); Russ Brovold (3b); John Tayoan (SS); Jim Delsing (LF); Mike Rollins (CF); Ed Gittens (RF); Ken Staples (C); Verl Westergaard (RHP); Bob Haas (LHP); Walt Lakics (util); and Bruno Haas (manager).

      Grand Forks drew a record attendance for their franchise with 57,482 paid. It was 22,930 more then the previous record.

      In the first round of the playoffs, F-M beat Eau Claire 4 games to 3 and St. Cloud beat Superior 4-2.

      During the playoff finals, St. Cloud used a baseball from 1888 for their pre-game infield practice. The ball was won by a St. Cloud team when they played a Fargo team in that year. It was owned by Frank Thielman (brother of former major league pitcher Jake Thielman) and loaned to the Rox.

        Thielman Bros.

        Thanks for verifing that Frank, Henry & Jake were brothers.Do you know if any of the other members of the team, made it to the bigs., I know that Walter Ball, the only black on the team, went on to play with black teams after 1902. He was a very dominate pitcher, before the Negro Leagues started in 1920. Born 20 years to early. He was nonminated for the Baseball Hall of Fame two years ago.
