Sports Center Saturday - Bill Kelly

Greenwood, Nebraska Baseball Club

That's my grandfather (Mom's dad), Bill Kelly, on the left in the back row playing for the Greenwood, Nebraska baseball club in 1911. You can always pick Bill out of any photograph because he's always the one with his hat cocked to the side!

William L Kelly, Sr. (back row, left), Jimmy Mann, Henry Weideman (manager), Clay Hansen, John Kimberly, Walter Burke, Clarence Stokes, Evan Armstrong, Ben Howard, Carl Weideman Played 54 games; won 48, lost 6.

That's a pretty darned good season record, if you ask me!

September 3, 2011 Update: See where this photo appeared a few months after this blog post.
