      Note to 1913 photo: that's Germany Schaefer at the left and right end of the line. They used a panaoramic camera that slowly swept left-to-right. Scheafer must have been in the extreme left-hand shot, just beside a coach or trainer, and then run behind the photographer in time to be the far right-hand player. We puzzled over this at Washington Nationals Fan Forum a couple of years ago...then noticed a similar photo of the Tigers with Ty Cobb (who else?) at both left and right. The Detroit photo explained how Cobb managed to be photographed in both places at the same time. Bingo! Then we knew how Germany had done it, and why he has that smile.

      We concluded: Germany Scheafer, Washington Nationals, 1913, had left a joke for us to spot 100 years later!

              A fire had destroyed the ballpark in March; it was not yet fully rebuilt when the Senators began their season.
