about 1905, as related by Brent G. Tye.
The photo taken in Pleasanton, just before a game with a team from Cainsville, Mo. which came here on the 2 p.m. passenter train and went home on the 5 p.m. freight caboose.

We carried two tents, one sleeping and one cook. We played in southern Iowa and northern Missouri.

The team played the famous much talked about 13 innings at Kellerton Reunion. We lost the 13 inning game to Grant City., Mo., stocked up with players from the old St. Joseph, Mo. Western League. Sport Summa was one of them. Charlie Tye pitched the entire game and yours truly was the catcher.

I'm sure John Fulton and Harve Butler of Leon will recall that game. Harve traveled with us part time.

At Mount Ayr their team came out in bright new uniforms. We beat them 20-0.

Front row, lying on ground - Clyde Bradshaw and Charley Bradshaw, both former 31 League players.
