I have only took a glance of a few pages about my Great Uncle Chick Shorten. The he opened the 1916 season in the first game with Babe Ruth on the mound. And Casey Stengel once threw him out in a game. Also that his force out scored the winning run against Walter Johnson. I like the team picture of the Boston team. I have an 8 by 10 World Series photo where they used this picture.
