Bay Area Pickup Baseball

                                                   Big Rec, Golden Gate Park, SF, Circa 1910

I like playing at Big Rec.  My first game there was in the fall of 1996.  It's a little quirky with right field of Nealon overlapping left field of Graham.  It's one of the few fields where you almost always have spectators.  Oh, and Yancy's is only 2 blocks away!  Gotta have those post-game refreshments.

Park Bums?  I played for the Park Bums for one fall season but not these guys.

Below are 4 pictures sent to me by Paul Wiederecht.

His understanding is that they were taken in 1965 at a baseball clinic at Big Rec, Graham, (the west field).

Instructors are Lefty O'Doul, Joe D. (DiMaggio?), Hobie Landrith, (catcher), and Con Dempsey (?)
