Photo shows Mordecai Peter Centennial Brown, (Three Finger Brown), baseball player for the Chicago Cubs, posed, standing, on baseball field. Photo dates 1910. Nice vintage photo for baseball fans or baseball memorabilia collectors.

About the Player
Mordecai Peter Centennial Brown (October 19, 1876 - February 14, 1948), nicknamed "Three Finger" or "Miner", was an American Major League Baseball pitcher at the turn of the 20th century. Due to a farm-machinery accident in his youth, Brown lost parts of two fingers on his right hand and eventually acquired his nickname as a result. Overcoming this handicap and turning it to his advantage, he became one of the elite pitchers of his era.

Brown was born in Nyesville, Indiana. He was also known as "Miner", having worked in western Indiana coal mines for a while before beginning his professional baseball career. Nicknames like "Miner" and "Three Finger" (or sometimes "Three-Fingered") were headline writers' inventions. To fans and friends he was probably best known as "Brownie".

In his later years, Brown was plagued by diabetes and then by the effects of a stroke. He died in 1948, and news of his passing reminded sportswriters of his past achievements. He was selected posthumously to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1949.

In 1999, 83 years after his last game and 51 years after his death, he was named as a finalist to the Major League Baseball All-Century Team.

Photograph of baseball player Jimmy Archer of the Chicago Cubs baseball team. Photo dates to 1912.

About the Player

James Patrick Archer (May 13, 1883 – March 29, 1958) was an Irish-born catcher in Major League Baseball who spent nearly his entire career with four National League teams, primarily the Chicago Cubs, for whom he played from 1909 to 1917. Born in Dublin, he also played for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1904, the American League's Detroit Tigers in 1907, and the Pirates, Brooklyn Robins and Cincinnati Reds in 1918. As a catcher, he could remain squatting and still throw out runners attempting to steal second base due to his unique arm strength, which became his trademark, acquired from the healing of burns that shortened his muscles after an industrial accident in which Archer fell into a vat of boiling sap at the age of 19.

He was elected to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 1990.

About the Player
James Leslie "Hippo" Vaughn (April 9, 1888 - May 29, 1966) was an American left-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball for the Chicago Cubs during the 1910s. He had some good years for the Cubs during a time when they were not always competitive, winning over 20 games in five seasons, including a National League-leading 22 in 1918, when the season was ended a month early due to government restrictions brought about by World War I.

Vaughn was born in Weatherford, Texas. Aside from the unflattering nickname (at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, he was only slightly less heavy than 1970s Cubs star Rick Reuschel), he is best remembered for his participation in what the record books used to refer to as a "double no-hitter". On May 2, 1917, at the ballpark now known as Wrigley Field, Vaughn dueled with Fred Toney of the Cincinnati Reds for 9 hitless innings. In the top of the tenth, the Reds scored on a couple of hits after Vaughn had retired the first batter, while Toney continued to hold the Cubs hitless in the bottom of the inning, winning the game for the Reds. With changes to the scoring rules in recent years, this game is no longer considered as a no-hitter for Vaughn; but it is still the only occasion in major league history in which a regulation nine innings was played without either team logging a hit.

With changes to the scoring rules in recent years, this game is no longer considered as a no-hitter for Vaughn; but it is still the only occasion in major league history in which a regulation nine innings was played without either team logging a hit.

Photograph of baseball player Jimmy Archer of the Chicago Cubs baseball team. Photo dates to 1913.

About the Player

James Patrick Archer (May 13, 1883 – March 29, 1958) was an Irish-born catcher in Major League Baseball who spent nearly his entire career with four National League teams, primarily the Chicago Cubs, for whom he played from 1909 to 1917. Born in Dublin, he also played for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1904, the American League's Detroit Tigers in 1907, and the Pirates, Brooklyn Robins and Cincinnati Reds in 1918. As a catcher, he could remain squatting and still throw out runners attempting to steal second base due to his unique arm strength, which became his trademark, acquired from the healing of burns that shortened his muscles after an industrial accident in which Archer fell into a vat of boiling sap at the age of 19.

He was elected to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 1990.

Photograph of baseball player Ed Reulbach of the Chicago Cubs team. Photo dates to 1906.

About the Player
Edward Marvin "Big Ed" Reulbach (December 1, 1882 – July 17, 1961) was a major league baseball pitcher for the Chicago Cubs during their Glory Years of the early 1900s.

His best year was 1908, when he won 24 games for the National League and World Series champion Cubs, their last Series win as of the 2007 season.

His single most impressive performance came in the 1906 Series against the cross-town rival Chicago White Sox. In a Series ultimately won in 6 Games by the Pale Hose, Reulbach nonetheless shone in Game 2 at South Side Park, giving up only one hit, a seventh-inning single to George Rohe. This rare World Series low-hit game (there have only been 5 in the 100-plus years of the Series) was matched by fellow Cubs star Claude Passeau in 1945 when he threw just the second one-hitter in Series history.

He pitched two complete game shutouts in one day against the Brooklyn Dodgers on September 26, 1908. No other pitcher has ever accomplished this feat in the major leagues. Reulbach's performance still stands as an achievement that will never be forgotten.

About the Player
John Joseph Evers (July 21, 1881 – March 28, 1947) was a Major League Baseball player and manager. He was born in Troy, New York. The name originally rhymed with beavers rather than severs, but Evers solemnly came to accept both pronunciations during his life.

Evers, a second baseman, made it to the big leagues with the Chicago Cubs in 1902 and played for the Cubs through 1913, during which time he appeared in three World Series and won two (in 1907 and 1908). One of the smallest men ever to play in the major leagues, Evers reportedly weighed less than 100 pounds (45 kg) when he first broke in, and generally played at a weight under 130 pounds (59 kg). His combative play earned him the nickname "The Crab."

Evers was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Veteran's Committee in 1946.

About the Player
Frederick Francis Mitchell, born Frederick Francis Yapp (June 5, 1878 – October 13, 1970), was an American right-handed pitcher, catcher and manager in Major League Baseball. After pitching for the Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Athletics, Philadelphia Phillies, and Brooklyn Superbas from 1901 to 1905, he returned to the major leagues as a catcher for the New York Highlanders in 1910. He was noted for relieving Hall of Famer Cy Young in the first-ever Red Sox game.

In 1917, he joined the Chicago Cubs as team president, and was later hired as manager. In his second year at the helm, he won the 1918 National League pennant, losing to the Red Sox in the 1918 World Series. However, in the middle of the 1919 season, he was relieved of his president duties and one year later, he was out of a job. The Boston Braves hired him as manager for the 1921 season, but his success in Chicago did not follow him to his hometown Braves, where he lost 100 games twice. After he was fired by the Braves, he returned to Harvard University where he had previously coached baseball in 1916.

About the Player
John Kling (February 25, 1875 in Kansas City, Missouri - January 31, 1947 in Kansas City) was a catcher in Major League Baseball for the Chicago Cubs (the Chicago Orphans until 1903) (1900-1908, 1910-1911), Boston Rustlers & Braves (1911-1912), and Cincinnati Reds (1913).

Kling was an exceptional defensive catcher and also had a decent bat. He was a pivotal member of the Cubs dynasty which won four National League pennants and two World Series titles between 1906 and 1910. In early 1909 he won the World Pocket Billiards Championship and stopped playing baseball for the 1909 season to defend that title.

In 1260 games, he batted .271 with 20 home runs and 513 RBIs all-time. He had 1151 hits in 4241 at bats. In August 1902, Kling put together a Major League Baseball record streak of 12 consecutive hits, a feat that wasn't uncovered until 2009. Walt Dropo later tied the mark in 1952.

Bridwell hit the single which caused the crucial "Merkle boner" running error of the 1908 season against the Chicago Cubs. The error ended up costing the Giants the pennant. He batted left-handed, and threw right-handed.

<![CDATA[1920s Chicago Cubs Baseball Team Owner William Wrigley Jr. Photo]]> http://www.retrosnapshots.com/1920s-chicago-cubs-baseball-team-owner-william-wrigley-jr-photo.html

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 baseball player Jimmy Lavender of the Chicago Cubs baseball team. Photo dates to 1912 and was taken at the Polo Grounds in New York where the New York Giants played.

About the Player
Jimmy Lavender (James Sanford Lavender May 26, 1884-January 12, 1960) was a Major League Baseball pitcher. Born in Barnesville, Georgia, the right-hander played with the Chicago Cubs from 1912-1916 and with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1917.

Lavender primarily threw the spitball in his career and used it to win 16 games as a 28 year old rookie in 1912. He would not equal that success again, winning only 10 or 11 games in each of his last four seasons in Chicago.

On July 8, 1912, he started against the New York Giants having pitched 34 consecutive scoreless innings in his previous outings. He pitched a 5-hitter in defeating the Giants 7-2 and ended Rube Marquard's consecutive win streak at 19 games which, at the time, tied the record for the longest streak in baseball history.

Lavender threw a no hitter on August 31, 1915 against the New York Giants and also threw a one-hitter against them on June 14, 1916, allowing only an infield single to Benny Kauff.

Lavender was an inconsistent pitcher with the Cubs, never completing more than half his starts in any season. He was also typically among the National League leaders in allowing the most wild pitches, hit batsmen and home runs.

He was traded to the Phillies in 1917 and pitched one season for them with a 6-8 record before his career ended. His final career record was 63-76 with a 3.09 ERA in 1,207 innings pitched. Lavender may have been most valuable to his teams for his ability to be both a starter and reliever. His ability to fill both roles was important to the small pitching staffs of the dead ball era.
