Site Updates: Player Profile Pages Finished (well … almost)

February 5th, 2007

I have uploaded profile pages for each of the Eight Men Out.  Unfortunately, I have not had a chance to write biographies for all of the players or post scans for all of their cards.  I’m still trying to confirm all of the different M101-4/M101-5/E135/H-cards/D-cards that appeared on the scene in 1916 and 1917.  In the meantime, enjoy!
