 Happy Fathers’Day from Old Time Baseball Photos!

All of us here at Old Time Baseball Photos (actually, that would be Ron and me!) want to wish all the fathers out there a very Happy Fathers Day! What American institution has ever been better at bonding together grandfathers, fathers and sons, generation after generation, than the great game of baseball. And so what better way to celebrate Fathers Day on Old Time Baseball Photos than with a photo tribute to some of baseball’s more notable fathers and sons!

To start things off, here’s one that came immediately to mind: It’s the classic photo of a young George Herman Ruth, Jr. helping out his old man at George Sr.’s Baltimore tavern in 1915. Boy, that George Jr. was the “spittin’ image” of the old man…a real chip off the old block! I wonder if junior ever amounted to anything! Let’s see… junior was born in 1895, making him about 20 at the time of the photo. Was he old enough to be working in a saloon?? Did they even have laws like that back then? Haha!

Anyway, I put together a nice collection of baseball fathers and sons. Click on the link to see it.

And a very Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there! Hope you enjoy your day!

And, by the way, if you’d like to share some reminiscences about your dad or your grandfather and baseball, please do so in the comments section below. And if you have some baseball father and son photos you’d like to add, please do so. We’d love to hear from you!

I'm a baseball historian who also loves to write. My forte is identifying ballplayers in old photos, and my specail interest is the Dead Ball Era.

    My grandfather (RIP) was a big baseball fan and sparked my interest as a young boy. He claimed to have worked out for the A’s but was rejected because Connie Mack was anti-semitic. Who knows. But my grandfather and I went to many games at Connie Mack Stadium to watch the Phils. His old car would barely move down Broad Street and I think he never broke 10 mph LOL! Later I would go to games with my buddies and we’d jump on the subway to avoid the traffic. The neighborhood around the stadium became sketchy and it was a risk to park your car. The Phils moved to the Vet but it just wasn’t the same. The Phils are part of my blood and I still watch and follow over 60 years later even living here in Florida. I bleed Philly red! My wonderful daughter will sit and watch with me and there is nothing that can match being a dad on Father’s Day. Best to all.

      Thanks Alan…great story! And it was my grandfather that sparked my interest in baseball, too. That’s why I’m a Cub fan 60 years later. So we share the same memories!
