I have an old family photo dated March 1890 of a baseball team. The shirts say eithe E.T. Allen or perhaps F.T. Allen. I was told this was the baseball team my great great grandfather played on ....he was William L. Allen, born 1869 New Jersey, died 1915 San Francisco. He may have played ball well beyond 1890 because family members have told me THEY were told years ago that William's death was somehow connected to blood poisoning from an injury to his leg he received playing ball.
Anyone familiar with good sources for the old baseball teams (aside from looking up the old 1890 SF newspapers which I will have to get over to the City and do one day).
Thanks so much. Donna Madrid
