(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 204: The Baseball Boys Revisited

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).    

Here is a small photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period: 

This picture was taken in about 1958, probably by my mother (the youngest boy above looks to be about three years old).  These are the three sons of Fred and Betty (Carringer) Seaver posing in their baseball hats and gloves.  From the left, they are:

*  Randy Seaver (a left-hander, who hoped to be a pitcher)
*  Scott Seaver (a right-hander, a future pitcher and shortstop, sporting his father's Luke Appling mitt and holding a baseball in his throwing hand)
*  Stan Seaver (a right-hander, a catcher in almost perfect position)

All we were missing was a playing field and uniforms.  It's funny, we never let that stop us!  We had the sidewalks of 30th Street to play on.  They were only about 8 feet wide between the curb and the house, but they worked for us.  We must have chased a million balls down to the corner, or further, though!
