Hey JMU At first I thought it was Welch who authored the GDT.
Where did you come up with Kite Thomas. I never heard of him and I had to look him up . Turns out he played less than 40 games for the Senartors in '53.
My grandfather was a huge Senators fan back in the day and for some reason (I'm guessing because they played .500 ball that season) he always would talk about the 1953 team. While I know most of the players from the team because of him, I can't take credit for knowing about Thomas, I just pulled his name from one of the lineups
. The Mets lineup comes from one of their 1986 games.
