1907 Newark Sailors Team Composite
Future Hall of Famer Eddie Collins was on this team for a total of four games, so he didn’t make it for this photo composite. However, Paul Krichell did make it onto the photo (his name is misspelled “Kritchell”). His playing career was uneventful…but his scouting career for the Yankees was legendary. His eye for talent led to the signings of future Yankees icons Lou Gehrig, Tony Lazzeri, Phil Rizzuto, and Whitey Ford.
