  • William J. Goeckel - 1899 First Baseman for Philiadelphia Phillies

    Can anyone help me find photos and any other information from the 1899 season. My Grandfather played with the Phillies for one season before retiring to his hometown of Wilkes-Barre to practise law. I have already contacted Cooperstown. They have very little due to a fire that destroyed alot of the old records. I would especially like to get a team photo of that year. Thankyou.

      thats pretty cool that grandfather played alongside hall of famers such as delahanty and lajoe
      "I had a good look at the first pitch I ever saw from Drysdale. If I had not ducked, it would have hit my right between the eyes."
