This week we are featuring a photograph of the 1907 Story City Baseball Club for our collection item of the week. The team photo was created by Hanson Studio, a local photography studio in Story City at the time.
This is the first Story City baseball club that Hank Severeid played on. Hank references all of these players in his article that was included in the 1940 Story City Herald Anniversary Book.
On May 15, 1911 Hank made his major league debut with the Cincinnati Reds. During his major league career, Hank also played for the St. Louis Browns, the Washington Senators, and the New York Yankees.
