Museum to assist

Ray Schalk recorded 1,811 assists in his major league baseball career (1912-29). Recently, I received an assist on his behalf.

The directors of the Bottomley-Ruffing-Schalk Baseball Museum (Nokomis, Ill.) have agreed to allow me to publish the Ray Schalk photos in their collection in my Schalk biography.

The only hitch is working out the details of acquiring digital files of the images without the actual prints leaving the museum premises. However, that can be arranged, I'm sure.

Part of the collection is this shot of a young Ray Schalk.
