Charlotte Hornets Baseball Club 1902 (feat. Moonlight Graham)

If you don’t follow Official MLB Historian John Thorn (@thorn_john) on Twitter, you’re missing out. If you don’t use Twitter, you’re really missing out.

Thank you to Mr. Thorn for this awesome pdf of the July 19, 1902 edition of Sporting Life (“Devoted to Baseball, Trap Shooting and General Sport”). The Charlotte Hornets Baseball Club (including outfielder Archibald “Moonlight” Graham) is featured on the cover in honor of their 25 game Consecutive Win Streak.

  1. If you click on the photo, you’ll be taken to the pdf of that cover, where you’ll find a terrific story about a ballplayer named Billy Sunday and “The Eficacy of Prayer.”
