Re: Ray Kolp (Reds Pitcher from 1927 thru 1934)
Yes, he is a distant relative. I talked earlier this year with his 95 year old niece in Colorado, who told me stories of her summers as a youngster living with Ray Kolp and wife Bertha in Cincinnati (probably at 1253 Rutledge Ave). She remembers him well, describing him as a "dapper" man. Says he earned $10,000 per year, which "was a fortune back then."
