Branch Rickey has a bad day behind the plate... gives up eleven stolen bases...
Item # 161506
June 29, 1907
THE DETROIT FREE PRESS, June 29, 1907 Small one column headline on pg. 8: Senators Turn Tables. One paragraph summary closes with: "Rickey was unable to hold the visitors on bases, eleven stolen bases being recorded for Washington." Includes the box score and game statistics. As all baseball aficionados know, Branch Rickey would have greater sucess in the front office as an executive. Browned and a bit pulpish at the edges causing a few minor tears as well as some minor chipping and flaking.
