    Some old baseball pictures

    I came across some of these photos, pretty cool.

    Here's a team picture of the Reds around 1905-1910



    Honus Wagner (Check out his arms)




    A Wash player at bat and the catcher has no shin guards and is in a standing squat, the batters demeanor with the stick makes one long for Donnie Sadler.

    These are great!
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    70 years ago The World Series was the Senators vs the Giants. I came across these photos of activities on the field prior and after the game at Griffith Stadium. Note in picture one the car and band on the field. In picture 2 this is a view of post game, I guess the fans could cross the field to exit at will.

    Here's The infamous Bill Burns (One of the bettors and manipulators in the Series Fix) Not often mentioned that he was an ex-player and Red. Circa 1911



    Here's some Reds fashion from 1905 and 1919

    Yeah, great stuff.

    It's really interesting to look at the shape of the bats, too. No pronounced barrell, very little taper at the handle.

    Here are a few others.

    Palace of the Fans circa 1905, see the plumbing building in the back ground? When the park was razed and redland built they swung the field to the left and the building was behind right field instead of CF.




    Here's a look at the type of ball the players had to hit back then.





    One thing about the dead ball era is that the 'superstars" generally were much larger men then the average ballplayer, look at this photo of the Cleveland Blues (Naps) checkout LaJoie (in the jacket) he's quite large compared to the rest.
