I like these two a lot. Thank you guys. Keep em coming! This is fantastic. I hope others are enjoying the little fun facts as well. I'll have to look up how Schaefer stole 1B.

He stole second, and on the next pitch he went backwards and stole first. He was trying to draw a throw so that the runner on third could score, I believe. The rules have been changed now so that you can't go backwards after reaching the next base prior to the current play.

What I want to know is: did Schaefer get credit for another steal when he went back, or did they deduct a stolen base from his total?

Answer: None. Even Mordecai had eight fingers total.

On a side note, does anyone know what trophy Hal Chase has in one of his cards?

Being from Virginia, I'm collecting the Virginia League subset of the SLers. Twelve cards, two from each of six Virginia cities: Danville, Lynchburg, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Richmond and Roanoke.

Having to keep this to some lesser-condition cards, but so far I'm at 5/12 and have not paid over $50 for a card yet.

It was a trophy given to him by his teammates after he ended his holdout I think. Or something like that.

That would be awesome to see. I wonder who owns it? Likely buried in some warehouse at the HOF never again to see the light of day.

Actually he had a case of smallpox that kept him out of action until May of 1909. All the teammates had to be vaccinated and their belongings fumigated. When he returned to the lineup and came to bat the first time the team presented him with the "loving" cup. Just googled it and that sounded feasible via Baseball research.
