1965-68 Ozzie Virgil Sr. Hillerich & Bradsby Game Used Bat

Virgil made his minor league debut in 1953 in St. Cloud, Minnesota in the Northern League. After spending the 1956 season with the Minneapolis Millers, Virgil made his major league debut that fall for the New York Giants.

On September 23, 1956, Virgil became the first player from the Dominican Republic to play Major League Baseball. On June 6, 1958 he became the first black ballplayer for the Detroit Tigers, who were among the last teams to break the racial barrier.

The Minneapolis Millers had four players to break the MLB color barriers - Monte Irvin, Hank Thompson, Ozzie Virgil and Pumpsie Green.

Default Pee Wee Wanningers contract the year Gehrig pinch hit for him to begin the streak

Pee Wee Wanninger played 6 years for St. Paul. He's an interesting footnote to the two longest consecutive games played streaks behind Ripken.

Cal Ripken holds the all-time record for consecutive games played with 2,632. Second on the list is Lou Gehrig with 2,130; third is Everett Scott with 1,307. Pee Wee Wanninger is tied to both men directly behind Ripken.

In the 1925 season a 32-year old Scott was slipping at shortstop and at the plate. When Yankee manager Miller Huggins saw fit to bench Scott and end the streak, he turned to the rookie Wanninger. On May 5th, 1925 Wanninger started in place of Scott to end what is still the third longest run in MLB history.

Four weeks later Huggins called on 22-year old Lou Gehrig to pinch hit for Wanninger in what would be the start of Gehrig’s own streak.

Here is Wanninger’s player’s contract for the 1925 season in which he helped stop and start two of baseball’s most prolific consecutive games streaks. The front page is also signed by Hall of Fame executive Ban Johnson.

Each of the names that have link that directs to their pages on my website. It's got autographs of all but three Hall of Famers who debuted in the big leagues since 1900. There are also almost 300 other pages with autographs of guys not in Cooperstown. Thanks for looking.

I hope everyone stays healthy,.

Saw this on Ebay and thought it was interesting. A St. Paul Saints vs Indianapolis Indians program from 1929. Both teams had a ton of major league talent and the ads are almost as interesting.

Thank you so much for the tip! I do already have a 1929 program in my collection. Can you believe the Saints won 102 games in 1929 and finished 2nd in the American Association to the Kansas City Blues who won 111 games that season!
