Photograph of baseball player Ray Schalk, catcher for the Chicago White Sox baseball team. Photo dates to 1920.

About the Player

Raymond William Schalk (August 12, 1892 - May 19, 1970) was a Major League Baseball catcher noted for his fine handling of pitchers and remarkable defensive ability.

Born in Harvel, Illinois, Schalk played for the Milwaukee Brewers of the American Association before being sold to the Chicago White Sox. He made his major league debut in 1912, playing 23 games behind the plate. He assumed the everyday role of catcher the following year, playing in 129 games, batting .244 and stealing 14 bases. Playing with the White Sox until 1928, Schalk established himself as one of the league's outstanding defensive catchers by leading the league's catchers in fielding percentage eight times and putouts nine times. He also established himself as one of the finest baserunning catchers of all-time, setting a single season stolen base record for the position in 1916 with 30 swipes which stood until John Wathan stole 36 bases in 1982. Schalk played on the 1917 world champion White Sox team and was one of the honest players on the 1919 Black Sox team, hitting .304 for the series. On April 30, 1922, he caught Charlie Robertson's perfect game against Detroit. Two months later, on June 27, Schalk hit for the cycle

Schalk's playing time diminished in 1927 as he assumed the role of manager, which he held into the 1928 season. Over the two seasons, he compiled 102 wins and 125 losses for a .449 winning percentage. Schalk moved to the New York Giants in 1929 but appeared in only 5 games before retiring. He finished his career with a .253 average, 579 runs, 11 home runs, 594 RBI and 177 stolen bases.

Schalk was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1955.

<![CDATA[1920 Chicago White Sox Baseball Player Buck Weaver]]> http://www.retrosnapshots.com/1920-chicago-white-sox-baseball-player-buck-weaver.html

Photograph of baseball player Buck Weaver of the Chicago White Sox baseball team. Photo dates to 1920.

About the Player
George Daniel "Buck" Weaver (August 18, 1890 - January 31, 1956) was an American shortstop and third baseman in Major League Baseball who played his entire career for the Chicago White Sox. He was one of the eight players banned from the Major Leagues for his connection to the 1919 Black Sox Scandal.

An excellent fielder, Weaver was known as the only third baseman in the league that Ty Cobb would not bunt against.

Weaver batted .324 in the 1919 World Series, tallying 11 hits. He played errorless ball in the Series, lending credence to his lifelong claim that he had nothing to do with the fix.

Weaver was banned for having knowledge of the fix and failing to tell team officials. This is somewhat cynical since Charles Comiskey, owner of the Chicago White Sox, had learned of the fix before the World Series began from both Kid Gleason, manager of the White Sox, and Hugh Fullerton, a reporter.

Weaver successfully sued Charles Comiskey for his 1921 salary. When Shoeless Joe Jackson did the same, the jury voted 11-1 in favor of Jackson. However, the judge set aside the jury verdict after Comiskey produced Jackson's grand jury testimony about the fix. The grand jury testimonies of both Joe Jackson and Eddie Cicotte had been stolen from the office of the Cook County States Attorney so they would not be available for the Black Sox trial. Since Comiskey had these testimonies, an obvious inference is that if the grand jury testimonies implicated Weaver, Comiskey would have used them against Weaver.

Weaver applied six times for reinstatement to baseball before his death from a heart attack on January 31, 1956 at age 65. Weaver was the third of the eight suspended "Black Sox" (after Shoeless Joe Jackson in 1951 and Fred McMullin in 1952) to die.

Many parts of the story portrayed in the movie Eight Men Out are told from Buck Weaver's point of view, with Weaver being played by John Cusack.

Photograph of baseball player Oscar "Happy" Felsch of the Chicago White Sox baseball team. Photo dates to 1920.

About the Player
Oscar Emil "Happy" Felsch (August 22, 1891 – August 17, 1964) was an American center fielder in Major League Baseball who played for the Chicago White Sox from 1915 to 1920. He is probably best known for his involvement in the 1919 Black Sox scandal.

Happy Felsch was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He began his baseball career with the minor league Milwaukee Brewers and was eventually sold to the White Sox, making his major league debut on April 14, 1915.

From 1916 to 1920, he was one of the best hitters in the American League, finishing in the top 10 in more than a few major batting categories. His 102 RBI was good enough for second place in 1917.

In 1919, Felsch agreed to join a group of White Sox players that planned to intentionally lose the World Series in exchange for monetary payments from a network of gamblers. Felsch received $5,000 for his role in the fix. There was little doubt of his guilt - he not only hit poorly against the Reds pitchers, but he also misplayed flyballs in key situations.

For his part in the fix, Felsch, along with seven other players, was made permanently ineligible for Major League Baseball by Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis. 1920, his last season in the majors, was by far his best. He hit .338 with 14 home runs and 115 RBI, and it is possible that he would have thrived in the lively ball era.

Photograph of baseball player Eddie Collins of the Chicago White Sox baseball team. Photo dates to 1912.

About the Player
Edward Trowbridge Collins, Sr. (May 2, 1887 – March 25, 1951), nicknamed "Cocky", was an American second baseman, manager and executive in Major League Baseball who played from 1906 to 1930 for the Philadelphia Athletics and Chicago White Sox. He was the greatest star on the Athletics' "$100,000 infield" which propelled the team to four American League (AL) pennants and three World Series titles between 1910 and 1914, and was named the league's Most Valuable Player in 1914; after that season his contract was sold to the White Sox, and he helped them to capture pennants in 1917 and 1919.

At the end of his career, he ranked second in major league history in career games (2,826), walks (1,499) and stolen bases (744), third in runs scored (1,821), fourth in hits (3,315) and at bats (9,949), sixth in on base percentage (.424), and eighth in total bases (4,268); he was also fourth in AL history in triples (187). He still holds the major league record of 512 career sacrifice hits, over 100 more than any other player. He was the first major leaguer in modern history to steal 80 bases in a season, and still shares the major league record of six steals in a game, which he accomplished twice in September 1912. He regularly batted over .320, retiring with a career average of .333. He also holds major league records for career games (2,650), assists (7,630) and total chances (14,591) at second base, and ranks second in putouts (6,526); his total of 1,215 double plays was a record until Charlie Gehringer passed him in 1938. Under the win shares statistical rating system created by baseball historian and analyst Bill James, Collins was the greatest second baseman of all time.

Photograph of baseball player John "Shano" Collins of the Chicago White Sox baseball team. Photo dates to 1920.

About the Player
John Francis "Shano" Collins (December 4, 1885 - September 10, 1955) was an American right fielder and first baseman in Major League Baseball for the Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox. In 1910, he played first base for the White Sox, but he was quickly moved to right field, where he would enjoy a reputation for having one of the strongest throwing arms in baseball.

He won a World Series with the Sox in 1917, delivering the game-winning hit in the pennant-clinching game. He batted .286 (6 for 21) in the 1917 World Series, going 3-for-4 in Game 1. In 1918, he set a record with three bases-loaded triples in one game, which would stand alone for 31 years until Elmer Valo tied the mark in 1949. He was traded to the Red Sox in 1921, where he finished his career.

In 1930, he was named manager of the Red Sox, but he only won a total of 73 games in parts of two seasons. He was fired after 55 games in 1931.

Photograph of William Wrigley Jr., owner of the Chicago Cubs. Photo dates to the 1920s.

About the History
William Wrigley Jr. (September 30, 1861–January 26, 1932) was a U.S. chewing gum industrialist. He was founder and eponym of the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company in 1891. He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Wrigley played an instrumental role in the history of Catalina Island, off the shore of Los Angeles, California. He bought the island in 1919 and improved the island with public utilities, new steamships, a hotel, the Casino building, and extensive plantings of trees, shrubs and flowers. He also sought to create an enterprise which would help employ local residents. By using clay and minerals found on the island in 1927 William Wrigley Jr. created the Pebbly Beach quarry and tile plant, at a beach located near Avalon. Along with creating a job market for Avalon residents, the plant also provided materials for Wrigley's numerous building projects on the island. After the building of Avalon's Casino (see Avalon Theater (Catalina)) in 1929, the Catalina Clay Products Tile and Pottery Plant began churning out handmade glazed tiles, dinnerware and other practical household items such as bookends. Nowadays, Catalina art pottery are highly popular antique collectibles.

However, William Wrigley Jr.'s greatest legacy was his plan for the future of Catalina Island — that it remain protected for all generations to enjoy. His son, P.K. Wrigley, eventually established the Catalina Island Conservancy for this in 1972 and transferred all family ownership to it. Wrigley is honored with the Wrigley Memorial in the Wrigley Botanical Gardens on the island.

Wrigley was also owner of the Chicago Cubs baseball team, which held its annual spring training on Catalina Island. Wrigley Field, the Cubs' ballpark in Chicago, is named for the owner. The now-demolished former home of the Los Angeles Angels of the Pacific Coast League, at that time the Cubs' top farm team, was also called Wrigley Field. He purchased the Chicago Cubs from Albert Lasker in 1925.

The Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona was partially financed, then wholly owned, by Wrigley, who finished the nearby Wrigley Mansion as a winter cottage in 1931. At 16,000 square feet (1,500 m2) it was the smallest of his five residences.

Wrigley left his fortune to daughter Dorothy Wrigley Offield, and son, P.K. Wrigley, who continued to run the company businesses for the next 45 years until his death.

His great-grandson William Wrigley, Jr. II is the executive-chairman and ex CEO of the Wrigley Company. Mr Wrigley, Jr. was inducted into the Junior Achievement U.S. Business Hall of Fame in 2000.

Photograph of Hall of Fame baseball player Babe Ruth of the New York Yankees baseball team. Photo dates to 1920 and this was the first year Babe played for the Yankees. His autograph is on the print as well.

About the Player
George Herman Ruth, Jr. (February 6, 1895 – August 16, 1948), also popularly known as "Babe", "The Bambino", and "The Sultan of Swat", was an American Major League baseball player from 1914–1935. Ruth is one of the greatest sports heroes of American culture. He has been named the greatest baseball player in history in various surveys and rankings, and his home run hitting prowess and charismatic personality made him a larger than life figure in the "Roaring Twenties".

He was the first player to hit 60 home runs in one season (1927), a record which stood for 34 years until broken by Roger Maris in 1961. Ruth's lifetime total of 714 home runs at his retirement in 1935 was a record for 39 years, until broken by Hank Aaron in 1974. Unlike many power hitters, Ruth also hit for average: his .342 lifetime batting is tenth highest in baseball history, and in one season (1923) he hit .393, a Yankee record. His .690 career slugging percentage and 1,164 career on-base plus slugging (OPS) remain the major league records.

Ruth dominated in the era in which he played. He led the league in home runs during a season 12 times, slugging percentage 13 times, OPS 13 times, runs scored eight times, and runs batted in (RBIs) six times. Each of those totals represents a modern record (and also an all-time record, except for RBIs). At the time of his retirement, his 714 home runs were not only the record, but that total was 336 more than the next player, Lou Gehrig. He also finished with the most career walks (2,062), most career extra base hits (1,356), and he is still the only player to have a season with at least 200 hits and 150 walks.

In 1936, Ruth became one of the first five players elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. In 1969, he was named baseball's Greatest Player Ever in a ballot commemorating the 100th anniversary of professional baseball. In 1998, The Sporting News ranked Ruth Number 1 on the list of "Baseball's 100 Greatest Players." In 1999, baseball fans named Ruth to the Major League Baseball All-Century Team.

Photograph of baseball player Lew Fonseca of the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. Photo dates to 1923.

About the Player
Lewis Albert Fonseca (January 21, 1899 - November 26, 1989) was an American first and second baseman in Major League Baseball for the Cincinnati Reds, Philadelphia Phillies, Cleveland Indians, and Chicago White Sox over a 12-year career. While not a power hitter, he did manage to hit for average and was a good contact hitter for most of his career. He topped the .300 mark six times, with his best season coming in 1929 with the Indians, when he hit .369 to win the American League batting title. What made it remarkable was that he was coming off a 1928 season in which he broke his leg. Unfortunately, his success was short-lived, as he broke his arm in 1930, and a torn ligament in his leg ended his playing career prematurely.

Fonseca is perhaps best known as one of the first men to use film in analyzing baseball games and finding flaws in players. It is said that his interest with cameras began while shooting Slide, Kelly, Slide in 1927. As manager of the Chicago White Sox, he used film extensively. After retiring from playing the game, he was director of promotions for both leagues.

About Mr. Edison
Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931) was an American inventor, scientist, and businessman who developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park" (now Edison, New Jersey) by a newspaper reporter, he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large teamwork to the process of invention, and therefore is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory. Edison's Menlo Park laboratory complex is said to live on in California's "invention factory" at Silicon Valley.

Edison is considered one of the most prolific inventors in history, holding 1,093 U.S. patents in his name, as well as many patents in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. He is credited with numerous inventions that contributed to mass communication and, in particular, telecommunications. These included a stock ticker, a mechanical vote recorder, a battery for an electric car, electrical power, recorded music and motion pictures. His advanced work in these fields was an outgrowth of his early career as a telegraph operator. Edison originated the concept and implementation of electric-power generation and distribution to homes, businesses, and factories – a crucial development in the modern industrialized world. His first power station was on Manhattan Island, New York.
