Nice view of some of the players and coaches of the Salt Lake amateur champions in 1909, The Oregon Short Line Base Ball Team 'The Railroaders.' "The Oregon Short Line baseball team defeated The Tribune nine in one of the fastest amateur games ever seen on Walker field, Saturday afternoon, by the score of 4 to 3. The game went eleven innings. Papworth who covered the rubber for the railroaders, fanned nineteen betters. Langley wore the mask for O.S.L." - Salt Lake Tribune (08/29/1909).
