My Father and His Three Sons in 1958 -- Post 541 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Recently, I discovered an envelope of small photographs saved when my mother died in 2002 - it was hiding in plain sight in the Genea-Cave! 

Included in the photo cache was this oldie-but-goodie - my father and his three sons in summer 1958:

I think that this photograph was taken in about June 1958 during Little League season.  My father, Fred Seaver, has his manager's hat on (managers did not wear uniforms in Little League, still don't!).  I am the flattop kid in the back in a hoodie sweatshirt (age 14 in summer 1958), my brother Stan (age 11 in summer 1958) is in his Butchers Union 229 uniform holding a bat, and my brother Scott (age 2-1/2 in summer 1958) is in the catcher's mask and glove.

The setting is the gated entrance to 2115 30th Street, which is on the ground floor of our residence at the time, 2119 30th Street.  

Baseball was a big part of my teenage and early adulthood years.  Little League (ages 8 to 12) started in the North Park Little League in 1957, and Pony League (ages 13-14) started about then also.  They played at Morley Field in Balboa Park, south of the tennis courts.  My father managed Stan's teams in Little League (1957-1959) and then in Pony League (1960-1961).  I didn't play, and kept score for those years.  Scott started Little League when he was 8 (1964) and played five years, then played Pony League for two years.  I was my dad's coach for the Little League years, and then managed the Little League team from 1969-1973.
