More Baseball Pictures

A lot of people seemed to enjoy the picture I posted on Monday of the Newport Baseball Club of 1954, so here's another one I had of the Newport Baseball Club of 1914.

Since I'm blogging about baseball, see if you recognize any of these boys on Ft. Loramie's varsity baseball team in 1947.

Back in Ft. Loramie

I've been back in Ft. Loramie for a couple weeks visiting family and friends. Below is a picture of me with Craig Fiessinger after having dinner at Brucken's on Thursday, May 16th. Craig is the creator of the website Fish Report, which posts news from the area and also promotes this blog. Craig is originally from Ft. Loramie, but now lives in Russia, Ohio.

I also stopped into Ft. Loramie High School on Friday, May 17th and spoke with Mr. Brad Turner, the Social Studies teacher.  Mr. Turner took this picture of me standing next to the Indian I restored for the school several years ago.
