Good morning, afternoon, or evening as the case may be! It sure is good to be back out and about town, back to doing some history.
As promised, here is the update to the two 1952 Little League team photos I sent out a few weeks ago. There are a few discrepancies with some of the names, so I hope that after reading them, you might be able to clarify them for me. Thank you to Robert Silva, Priscilla Almquist-Olsen, Russell Anderson, Gil Heino, Nancy Hill, Don Cabral, Patricia Maguire Parrie, and John Conant who all suggested the names listed here.
I have attached the two team photos for you to go over and compare names. In a few cases, two possibilities are given for one person. A few others are missing first names. A few people suggested Paul Keyes as one of the team members, but in different locations, so if we can get that figured out it would be appreciated!
Stay well, and looking towards spring training,
