The Israelites

The Israelite Base Ball Club has organized for the season with the following players:  M. Levy, c.; S. Lowenstein, p.; B. Isaacs, 1b.; P. Linz, 2b.; F. Jacobs, 3b.; P. Reilly, s.s.; J. Cashbaum, l.f.; E. Samuels, c.f.; B. Munchweiler, r.f.  Would like to hear from all clubs whose players are under 18.  Address all challenges to Isadore Stern, 1109 Chouteau avenue.

I think this is cool.  We have white clubs and black clubs and Irish clubs and clubs of all sorts, shapes and sizes.  Now we have a Jewish club.  I'm sure they made Lip Pike proud.
