    Pitcher Rube Waddell, Supplement from the St. Louis Register (1909)
    The Browns' road uniform was the same in 1908 and 1909, so it is difficult to know when this photo was taken.

    Love these old pictures. Everyone in the stands is wearing a hat and a few of the men (no women in this shot at all) in the front row look like they couldn't be more bored.

    I suspect that the players usually trashed them after they had received their new ones for the coming season. They probably didn't expect that their stained, torn, somewhat smelly old clothing would have great value to collectors some day.

    The players owned their uniforms--they would wear the previous year's uniform to spring training, even if they had been traded to another team. Perhaps they owned the sweaters also. I don't know how much, if anything, the owners charged them for the clothing.

    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.

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

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

    Pinch Hitter Dode Criss (.341)

    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.
