Play ball

The start of the 2011 Major League Baseball season is an appropriate time to show off this antique photograph of players in the Mon Valley, Pa., area circa 1910. All I know about the shot is that I pulled it from a newspaper editor's trash in the 1990s while we were cleaning out the files at the old Daily Herald in Monongahela. Some of the guys, shown above, might have played for nearby Donora, given the "D" sewn on a couple of their shirts. Click here to look at a bunch of other old or vintage photos in my collection.
