Old Business Made New, 2
To continued with what Bob McConnell sent me:
One of the articles sent in by Art Schott, which appeared in the April, 2003 Newsletter, told about the almost full schedule played by the eight regulars on the Nashville Vols of the Southern Association. Jamie Selko points out that the 1925 Fort Worth Panthers of the Texas League outdid the Nashville club. Fort Worth played 155 games. The following is a rundown on the regulars with the “Games played by Position,” with all three outfield positions broken down:
1b Ed Konethcy— 155 G
2b Ed Palmer— 154
3b Bill Mullen— 151
ss Wayne Windle— 155
lf Ziggy Sears— 155
cf Stormy Davis— 153
rf Frank Eddington— 155
c Henry Moore— 89 & Herb Smith— 77 were the only two catchers used all season
In addition, the four-man rotation started 139 of the 155 games.
George Hudson, a 19th century pitcher, is to the 300 win mark. With a little more research, we may be able to put him over. Contact Reed Howard for further information on how you can help, and what has been done so far.
Willie Runquist has produced a 76-page booklet on the farm clubs of the Toronto Blue Jays, 1991-2002. It lists, in a year-by-year format, team and individual stats for all farm clubs. It includes an alphabetical list of all players at the back, plus several other features.

Tomorrow we will finish up on the material that Bob McConnell sent me.
