Not only was Gehrig very strong but he was very fast for a big man … Look how close he is to the other 2 Yankees ahead of him…Here he is rounding 3rd base after hitting a triple with 2 men on !! Earl Combs has just scored and Koenig is between 3rd and home…Gehrig was thrown out trying for the inside the park home run…
What's the only single digit number retired in the Major Leagues?
Who was his roomate on the road?
Who was he?.What position did he play?
I'm not sure when the Highlanders offically were renamed the Yankees but I believe it was 1913. Can anyone verify this?
Dorothy Ruth's Obituary from The New York Times, Saturday, May 20th, 1989. I'm not sure I knew she was not Helen's daughter. Maybe I heard it but forgot.

Mickey was plagued with leg problems throught his career. How did he originally injure them?
Carl Mays was a right-handed pitcher who had first come up with the Boston Red Sox in 1915 and immediately established himself as a winning pitcher. Standing just under 6 feet and weighing 195 pounds, he was a submarine sinkerballer who sometimes scraped his knuckles across the mound as he followed through his motion. He had the habit of throwing inside to batters to brush them off, and was always among the leaders when it came to hit batsmen. He was also a surly, mean spirited individual who...
This is copy of Urban Shocker's Obituary from The New York Times, September 11, 1928. I did not know he tried playing semi pro after his last stint with the Yankees. It's hard to read I had to shrink to make the file size limit.

On comparing players.
This is my opinion on the process of comparing players from one era to another. I don't think it is possible to compare the players from one era to another era ( ie pre 1950 to post 1950) and other time frames as well, because there is no one alive at the present time that has seen those people play. They would had to have been a contemporary say around 20 years old with enough Baseball expertise (sports writers) to evaluate the level of play and seen them perform for...

New York Yankees Right handed Hitter?
Month & Year?
Slippery Elm guessed the last "Guess this Yankee" right off the bat. It was Mike Gazella. I hope this one is harder to guess.
Could not find a photo this time, but I have a baseball card of this guy and scanned that. For those familiar with the card I did edit out his name.
Hints: The card is a 1911 Turkey Red Cabinet. Which would be his 1910 season. First regular Yankee catcher.
