    Re: Really old baseball photos

    I saw the thread title and thought this would be pictures of the Cubs winning the Series.

    here is a pic of The Cubs in 1908

    And in picture from the 08 series- Ty Cobb hitting a triple.




    Also must refrain from joke about Hitler and the picture in first post.

    We forget how state of the art that costume was - and it's still better looking than Gapper.

    One of only two players in baseball history with more than 400 HR and, when you subtract all his HR, he still had more than 3000 hits. (Aaron is the other)
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov

    West Side Park looks incredible. Has a cricket pitch feel to it.

    That's Fort Pulaski, in Georgia. I visited there two summers ago on a trip to Tybee Island.
    The old fort and the field of play are still there.

    I was thinking the same. I grew up in Savannah and have been a few dozen times (regular stop on the school field trip circuit). I wasn't sure if the fort look was a standard look from the time though.
