              • 1907-1909 Mike Mitchell, Right Fielder

                As a 27-year-old rookie in 1907, Mike Mitchell recorded an astonishing 39 assists from right field. (Only Chuck Klein, playing in a very short right field at Baker Bowl, has a higher total since 1900.) Mitchell hit .292 that year, and after a second-year slump, he rebounded to lead the league in triples in both 1909 and 1910. After five seasons with Cincinnati, he began to decline, and finished his career with the Cubs, Pirates, and Senators. Photos of him in a Cincinnati uniform (other than group pictures) are difficult to find.

                          • Two photos with uncertain dates:

                            Bob Ewing, Pitcher, probably 1908
                            The block lettering on the uniform was used on the road 1901-1907. The cap appears to be red, which the team wore in 1901 at home, but Ewing joined the Reds in 1902, when they wore dark blue road uniforms 1901-1903. The road uniforms and caps were gray 1904-1907. Red caps returned as part of the home and road uniforms in 1908. The lettering on the 1908 road uniform was different (see the Tom Downey photo below) than seen on Ewing's shirt, but the players in the 1908 team photo (probably taken during spring training) are wearing different combinations of the 1907 and 1908 uniforms, thus early 1908 is the most likely date for this photo.

                            Tom Downey, SS, 1908 or 1909
                            Downey played his first major league game with Cincinnati in 1909, but in this photo he is wearing a 1908 road uniform. Either he was with the team but did not play for them in 1908 (perhaps after the minor league season had ended), or he wore this uniform in spring training of 1909.
