more sunday morning target dodgers

we're going way back to start this post with none other than tacks latimer.
tacks appeared in just 8 games for the brooklyn superbas in 1902, his only year with the organization.  he picked up just 1 hit in his 24 at bats.  in 1899, he was traded with a bunch of players, including honus wagner, from louisville to the pirates.  that's not bad company to be in.

ed lennox
lennox was the superbas' third baseman in 1909 and 1910.  he began his career with connie mack's philadelphia a's in 1906 and finished up with the pittsburgh rebels (managed by rebel oakes) of the frontier league in 1915.

franklin stubbs
currently the hitting coach for the dodgers' minor league team in san bernardino, stubbs was the dodgers' primary first baseman in 1988.  an unlikely 2-hole batter, he hit .294 in the world series against the a's and drove in the first run of the dodgers' game 2 shutout victory.  he was traded to the astros in 1990 for terry wells who pitched in 5 games for the 1990 dodgers.  i wonder if he's in this set.  i'll have to look.  nope.

in that case, we'll end with bill steele.
big bill finished his career with the brooklyn robins in 1914.  he had 1 win in his 8 appearances with the club.  i am guessing that he wasn't out of focus and grainy looking in real life.
