Posted By: <b>David&nbsp; </b><p>Does anyone know if Rube Marquard pitched for the 1928 Birmingham Barons (Southern Assocation). I know that he played for them in 1927 .... I have the 1928 Barons original team photo, and one of them looks an awful like Marquard (gandershank with sticky-out ears). thanks
