I don't know if that is your real name but whatever it is I can't thank you enough. The only thing that I have from my grandfather and his ball playing years are the two pictures. The one from 1903 was a large team picture however I believe my grandmother ripped out just the portion of my grandfather. My mother, the daughter-in-law, could not believe that someone could deface a picture like that! I do remember stories saying that my grandfather was approached by the "bigger" leagues, whether that meant the minor pros or what, I don't know. The story has it that my grandmother already had small babies and was completely against him traveling. He was a baseball fanatic until his dying day! As for posting a picture. I will have to wait until my daughter or son-in-law comes over to help me post them. They are very clear pictures! Thank heavens my mother saved them! My email address is:
