    Sick's Stadium was in an area called Garlic Gulch, due to the large Italian population there. it is a couple miles South East from the Downtown area. Many of these citizens were truck farmers who had gardens in the area. There is a famous garden that used to sit up on the hill behind the outfield, I think it was there when the Rainiers played there. As far as population density, by 1969, I believe it was fairly dense, with mostly residential and along Rainier Avenue South, Industrial.

    Before Sicks was built, there was a ballpark at the site for many years. The name escapes me.

    www.historylink.org has some great stuff on Seattle History, with stories of Seattle neighborhoods, including Rainier Valley, Columbia City and The Mt. Baker district.
    Here's a pic that relates to that garden -

    You mean this guy? Gene Brabender. The color picture with the dark framed glasses is Rich Rollins.

    Pilots B&W negatives on eBay (plus more custom cards)

    There have been a number of B&W negatives posted to ebay in recent weeks. I've been posting them to Baseball Birthdays. My facial recognition skills are crap (they are listed on ebay simply as "Pilots player"), but most of them are identifiable (Donaldson, Goossen, Gus Gil, etc.). A couple of them, I have no clue. Most especially the guy attached to this post. Perhaps Tailwind Tommy or some of the other Pilots faithful can do better. I think the pics are from the August series at RFK. In any case, check the full set at Baseball Birthdays for some Pilots pics you might not have seen before.

    I've also been posting a set of Pilots cards (one at a time) elsewhere on the Baseball Birthdays site. Some good, some bad, some colorized, some photoshopped (or whatever the GIMP equivalent of "photoshopped" would be). They're in the style of 1971 Topps. Worth a peek, I think. I think some of the later ones are better than some of the earlier ones, but who knows?

    You've identified these photos correctly. Thanks for sharing.

    Spring Training Photos
    Hey, y'all. New here.

    Came across some cool photos from Spring Training 1969. Whoever posted them seems to have forgotten to caption them correctly as it seems all but one are labeled John Morris. It looks to me as though only two are actually John Morris (left-handed with sideburns). 5 Jack Akers (right-handed) and looks like 4 Steve Barbers (left-handed, no sideburns). Sample photo (Aker) attached. So few Pilots photos out there, every one counts.

    light blue numerals really stand out. And it looks like the belt matches the numerals. See this picture here: http://www.faketeams.com/photos/fant...3-2-12/3078169

    Thanks for the photos, E!

    Pilots Press Pass

    I saw this in an auction a few years back. It has a credit-card look to it. I would assume that it's pretty rare. Enjoy! ~B

    New link

    Here is the updated gasoline alley link:

    That Pilots "spinner charm" is an especially attractive piece. Out of my budget unfortunately.
