(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 202: The Baseball Guys

 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 the Spring of 1959, probably by my mother.  The person in this picture are (from left):

*  Frederick W. Seaver, my father, in the baseball hat
*  Scott Seaver, my youngest brother, in the catcher's mask.
*  Randy Seaver, moi, in the hooded sweatshirt
*  Stan Seaver, my brother, in the Little League uniform.

Stan was playing Little League baseball this year, and my father was the team manager.  I was the scorekeeper (being too old for Little League), and Scott was the mascot (I think he was the batboy too).  

After this year, Stan played Pony League for two years, then Colt League for two years, and played high school baseball for two years.  Dad managed the Pony League and Colt League teams.  I continued to keep score.  Scott started Little League in 1964, and dad managed his teams all the way through Colt League.  I was Dad's coach when Scott was in Little League, then managed my own Little League teams for six years.  

Baseball was a very big deal in our family!  I wish that I had more pictures from those years.

Great photo - and great memories. My Dad also coached or managed my younger brother's Little League team for quite awhile, including after he was too old to play. And as big sister, I learned to do the official scorekeeping. Loved it - continue to enjoy baseball now as I tiptoe into my 70's! Thanks for sharing, Randy.
