Hi, Tom.  Thanks for sharing.  I had not seen that map before with the outline of Yankee stadium there (where the Target is today).  That would have been pretty wild to have the “House that Ruth Built” in Kingsbridge.  It would have made sense given the subway line and multiple train lines going through the area.  From the map it appears that the infield would have been in Manhattan while the outfield would have been in The Bronx.  That would have resulted in some funny in-game commentary for sure!

I also am curious about some of those postcards because I thought I had seen them all but some of those don’t sound familiar.  Do you own all of them?  If yes, would you mind sharing the one of Dashe’s Lane?
