Default I got it!

Here we find Kid Elberfeld settling under a major league pop-up. Most plays in baseball happen at break-neck speed: swing or take at 95 MPH; get to, gather, and gun to first to nip the runner; sprint down and catch the drive in the gap. They also often involve other players: hit the cut-off man; throw to first for the put-out; receive the ball and fire to second to nail a base-stealer. But the impossibly-high pop-up typically, quickly becomes one player's -- all the way.

But it takes several seconds to soar up, stop, and race down, twisted by invisible wind. Here, Elberfeld is alone, focused on what is clearly his play to make. In the back ground a storm appears to be brewing, tornado possibly. No other player can help him. And it takes time. I think it was Dmitri Young who was asked what he was thinking about as he tried to stay under a high foul pop-up behind first base. He said: "I kept asking myself where the circus music was coming from".

George's write-ups are always interesting, thank you. Here is a T3 of Art Devlin. He played in an era that deflated his raw statistics, but by some modern measures he was as good or better than HOFers Kell, Traynor, and Lindstrom. At any rate, he was probably the best NL third baseman of the early 1900s and here he is in his last year with the Giants.

Sam "The Triples Man" Crawford. Sadly, despite desperately wanting the world to know about his career MLB triples record, he has been relegated on this thread to being shown in a follow through pose after performing the commonplace activity of throwing a baseball.

If my experience holds true for others, of your gray/green group, the green are harder. Of the 24 cards found in both colors, I have 4 green and 33 gray (several duplicates, obviously).

Default Doc Reisling

Frank C. "Doc" Reisling. Pitcher for the Washington Senators in 1909-1910. 15 wins in 4 MLB seasons. He debuted with the Brooklyn Superbas in 1904-1905. He had a career ERA of 2.45 in 311.2 innings pitched. His one almost full season was his best and his last as he posted a 2.54 ERA on 191 innings pitched in 1910.

Doc Reisling pitched a little bit in MLB, mostly with the sub-.500 Washington team of 1910. The rest of the time between 1897 and 1915 found him playing and managing in the minor leagues. It was as a manager for Tecumseh in 1914, that he gave us a reason to remember him.

Because poor field conditions led to many rainouts and travel schedules made rescheduling missed games difficult, it was common for the total games played to differ between teams and for the pennant to hinge on winning percentage, not record. Whichever team had the best winning percentage at the close of the final day of the season, was the winner. Previously rained out games could be crowded into the last few days of the season, but the opposing team had to be available and teams (and players) were reluctant to travel just to make up games once their team was eliminated.

At the end of the 1914 season, with the pennant coming down to the last day, Doc managed to schedule (and win) a triple header which gave his team the best winning percentage. Alas for Doc and the Tecumseh team, the league president invalidated the third game, and they were denied the pennant. But you can't say they didn't try.

And, of course, Doc's 1909-10 stint with Washington, allowed him to leave us this card.

Default E107 Lew Drill

Lewis L. "Lew" Drill. Catcher with the Washington Senators in 1902-1904. 231 hits in 4 MLB seasons. His last MLB seasons were 1904-1905 with the Detroit Tigers.

Lew Drill was a good hitter, especially for a catcher. His career OBP was .353 and in 1905 he outhit teammate Ty Cobb. As an 18-yr old rookie, Cobb hit .240 in 1905. But, Drill's MLB career was cut short in 1906 when he refused his contract because he could make more money as a lawyer.

Drill had a long career as an attorney and, as a protégé of U.S. Senator Thomas Schall was appointed in 1929 to the post of United States Attorney for Minnesota. He gained notoriety when he refused to vacate his office for a Franklin Roosevelt appointee until December 1935 when Senator Schall, his sponsor, was killed in a car accident.

But, any proper list of Drill's noteworthy accomplishments would be headed by his status as a graduate of Georgetown University and his hitch with the Washington Senators, which was timed perfectly to allow him to leave us this card.

Default T207 Ray Morgan

Raymond C. "Ray" Morgan. Second baseman for the Washington Senators in 1911-1918. 630 hits and 88 stolen bases in 8 MLB seasons. His career OBP was .348. His best season was 1913 as he posted a .369 OBP with 19 stolen bases in 565 plate appearances.

Morgan has an odd link to Babe Ruth: in 1917, he led off a game by drawing a 4-pitch walk from Boston starter Ruth, who was then ejected from the game by the home plate umpire. Ruth was replaced by Ernie Shore and Morgan was thrown out attempting to steal on Shore's first pitch. Shore then retired the next 26 batters he faced. Shore's "perfect game" was eventually down-graded to a "combined no-hitter" by subsequent revisions in the MLB criteria.

Those of you outside a small portion of the middle Atlantic region (put a circle around Baltimore, MD), may find it difficult to appreciate one of Morgan's other peculiar specialties -- he was an outstanding duckpin bowler. Three balls and you're out!

Both the E93 Standard Caramel and E98 Collins cards actually picture Jimmy Collins, not Eddie Collins. Both players played for the Philadelphia Athletics in 1907 and 1908. Jimmy was the established star, while Eddie was just a newbie. I believe both the catalogues and grading companies identify these cards incorrectly as Eddie.

Here's something a little different: a cabinet featuring some game action. I have no idea where or when this is from...maybe a college team (the buildings look vaguely collegiate). I looked with a magnifying glass and could find nothing useful. Open to any suggestions, maybe there is enough here for someone to recognize something. The only thing I am pretty sure of is that Buck Ewing is the catcher .
