“New York State Reformatory, baseball team, amateur champions, Chemung County, winners of Chamber of Commerce Cup, 1921.”


This image SHOULD be in the public domain, but still, might as well note that John McNab has this under a creative commons license.

The skinny cat is a nice touch.

Well, at least the team appears to be integrated.

Don't bet against rural New York for prison teams.

Albert Pujols did time?

The guy with the glasses: everybody called him "Professor," and he was doing time for embezzlement. Everyone else was just in for various and sundry violent crimes.

Another old picture with dudes staring off into nothingness.

Really, they had very little incentive to look at the camera. What's the worst that could happen? They'd have to sit there for another picture.

They had spare time once the season was over.

Where's Jeff Leonard?
   11. Chris D Posted: May 26, 2010 at 07:09 PM (#3543562)
Sure but consider the home-field advantage they had.

Cooler.

Harry Brecheen?

Looking at the score, you'd have to guess stealing wasn't allowed.

Is the guy in front the umpire?

And what did the cat do to get sent to prison?

Brian Sabean was the GM of the visiting squad.

Held up a truck delivering fish on a highway and when the police caught up to him, he plugged a state trooper right between the eyes in the ensuing gunfight before he surrendered.

Got the chair.
