    That was good work in obtaining the obituary and photo of Ray Hamrick. Photos of Hamrick in playing uniforms, whether from minor leagues teams or from the Phillies are rare.

    I've noted his death in the thread "Oldest Living Phillies: List of all living Phillies players born before 1930". Less than 2 months shy of his 88th birthday, he was among the 20 oldest living Phillies players until his passing.

      The minor league Nashville Sounds have posted an excellent article on their website about an interview Nashville historian Bill Traughber had with Hamrick in 2001. It is a two-part article and can be accessed by clicking here:

        That was a really nice article on Ray Hamrick and a nice photo of him as a Phillie. (It's the best photo I've ever come across of him in a Phillies unifrom.) He sounded like a really nice guy. It's too bad he never made it back to the big leagues after his military service.
