          Hoffman stole just 17 bases for St. Louis in 1908 after three straight seasons of at least 30.

            Left Fielder George Stone (.281) (Photos from 1905)

            Stone batted in an extreme crouch position, and had a short, choppy swing.
            He led the team in runs scored in 1908 with 89, but his skills had begun a steady decline.
            He played just two more seasons in the major leagues.

                  Pinch Hitter Dode Criss (.341)

                  Dode Criss.jpg

                  Criss was the first pinch hitting specialist in major league baseball.
                  He led the AL in pinch hits and pinch at-bats for four straight seasons beginning in 1908, when he was 12-for-41.
                  He also occasionally pitched (0-1 in 1908) and played the outfield and first base.

                        Pelty must have treasured the fancy Browns' jacket!

                          this 1908 dark hat seems to be different than the one with the fleur-de-lis. It appears to be an STL on the hat, but I can't tell for sure

                            Egads! I posted a photo of the Cardinals! Oh, the humiliation!

                            Good eye, Brownieand45sfan. I've deleted the photo from this collection.

                                >>Pelty must have treasured the fancy Browns' jacket!

                                I'm surprised that the notoriously-stingy Golden Age owners let him keep it.

                                So the most important question is ... where are those sweaters today? I would hope that they would have been handed down in the families rather than being tossed out.

                                I would *love* to have one of those on loan to the Browns' Historical Society for display in our museum display.
