The Monroe Elks Baseball Team – 1920

I found the above photo in a 1950 newspaper article. After doing a little research, I found that back in 1920, Mr. Haas was the coach of the Monroe Elks and their opening game was held at Forsythe Park on May 23, 1920. I would venture to guess it was taken that day. Baseball was big in Monroe a hundred years ago! The following article from the day before that game states the names of the players and what position they played.
