SHADOW OF TIME FALLS ON THREE VETERANS
AS 1917 BASEBALL SEASON NEARS
The baseball season of 1916 saw
the passing of five of the game's
Tjreatesjstars! -
Will 1917 herald the passing of
three other veterans who have en
deared themselves to followers of
- game? ,
In 1916 MathewBon, Miner Brown,
Nap Rucker, Larry Lajoie, and Rhody
Wallace hung up their uniforms,
never again to don them in the big
leagues.
And as 1917 opens the shadow of
time rests gloomily on Honus Wag
ner, Eddie Plank and Sam-Crawford,
three giants of the gam & of giants.
