Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Some of these snapshots were taken at the season opener for the New York Yankees in 1913 at the Polo Grounds. Frank Chance was honored that day. I think some of the others were taken on another day, but they all came from the same collection.<br /><br /> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/1913Yankees1Small.jpg"><br /> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/1913Yankees2Small.jpg"><br /> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/1913Yankees3Small.jpg"><br /> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/1913Yankees4Small.jpg"> <br /> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/1913Yankees5Small.jpg"> <br /> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/1913Yankees6Small.jpg"> <br /><br />You can't see it real well in my scan, but the wreath says "Frank Chance Our Peerless Leader 1913" Somewhere on my computer I have a newsphoto taken from that event and if I can find it I'll post it here.<br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/1913Yankees7Small.jpg"> <br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Max, good question....I guess the Friars club must have given the ceremony.
