On Thursday morning this past week Edie and I had breakfast with friends in Lakeland, Florida, where the Detroit Tigers have had their Spring Training for the last 77 years. When we left the U.P. last Sunday, we drove past that historic baseball field in Baraga at Assinins (of which we made a little video) to kick off a two-week road trip around the Eastern U.S. (including delivery of 540 pasties to The Villages, Florida). In keeping with the subject of baseball, Walter and Theresa Sands sent us today's Shoebox Memory:

Hi Charlie,

This is a photo my grandfather Matt Getzen had of the 1893 Baraga Baseball Team. The players were Joe Courtney, Dan McCarthy, Shepard, Daley, George Roach, Tom Nugent, Joe Gengrass, Rene Levy, Matt Smith, Davinport. Check out their equipment.

It's a great old Baraga area photo, of which I've included the original, if you'd like to take a closer look. We've been highlighting Baraga all this month, and even our Feb 17th Day in History takes place at Baraga.

Edie and I are waking up in Morristown, Tennessee this morning, on our way up the East Coast toward Connecticut, where we'll visit with the original Pasty Camist this week (our son Jonathan and his wife Katriina). It is quite frigid across the eastern U.S. this morning, and we see sub-zero temps back in the U.P.

Thanks for sharing the wonderful old photo, Walter. And thanks to Jerry and Kati for breakfast in Lakeland last Thursday. Have a good week :o)

Now those guys look like they mean business!! Love the face mask being held by one of the fellas.
Thanks Walter and Charlie for sharing this 'blast from the past'!

Looks like the only guy that gets a glove is the catcher.
