Howard Simeon Duckworth is the one kneeling without the Hat.
Photo contributed by
Buddy Duckworth.

Correction: Lefty Groves is not in this photo.
Of this we are certain, as he would only have been 7 year old.
As Allegany County's Hall of Fame "resident" he deserves mention here.

Jessica found this picture at her grandmother's
house.On the back it says "picture of the
Allegany Baseball Team."

Below are two photographs contributed by Pat Dailey. The teams represented in these photographs are Johnnie Greene's Highlanders and the team from Piedmont, WV & Westernport, MD. Pat's grandfather George Dailey played for the Highlanders in 1901, which leads us to believe that the photo is from that year.

LLoyd Dailey, labeled #6 below played with the team from Westernport/Piedmont. Lloyd was born in 1875 and died in 1909. By 1900, LLoyd was already 25, so this photo may even be from the late 1800's. Since all the players are listed, it may be possible to determine the date of this picture by researching old Cumberland & Piedmont newspapers.

If you can help us answer such questions as when the photo was taken, where this ball field is located, or who Frank & Bill are, please be sure to send a message.

Notice just how dressed-up this group of baseball fans are. Even some of the player are wearing ties.
