Do you ever come across stories about the indoor baseball fad around the turn of the century?
I am working on something related to indoor baseball. Hopefully will have something posted soon. Thanks.
I just stumbled on this site, and may get fired for the time I have spent on it today. Really wonderful stuff, consider me to be a fan (although I may soon be an unemployed one). PS I am a fan of the Alleghenies.
Thank you. Hope you’ll be back.
Any info on Jim mccormick?
I found a newspaper clipping from the Minneapolis Journal from May 22, 1905. The article stated that the 1905 sesaon was the first of the Copper Country Soo League.
Could there still be a link with the Copper Country League that played in 1904?
I believe it was essentially the same league–Calumet and Lake Linden remained, Dollar Bay and Portage Lake dropped out and were replaced by Hancock and Sault Ste Marie–it seems that the “New” part was the name. Many of those small minor leagues folded and reformed so frequently that they could often be called a new league while maintaining many of the same franchises and financiers.
It is clear that there is a kind of link between the two leagues.
I like your blog btw. Very intersting and entertaining.
Can I have your e-mail address? I found another newspaper clipping that sheds a complete different light on the case. Thanks to this clipping I tend to believe that the Copper Country Soo League and the Copper Country League were all the same and both names were used next to each other.
Thank you. I am enjoying yours as well.
