WSC All-Stars: Luke Sewell 1937

Card #9 - Luke Sewell

Luke was selected as the reserve catcher for the American League All-Stars at Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C., but did not play in the game, due to New York Yankees backstop Bill Dickey (brother of future White Sox catcher George Dickey) playing the entire game.

Not too much against the softball tops, but these are the uniforms we need to bring back as throwbacks. The bat and ball Sox logo is so fine.

I would love to see those as throwback uniforms!

Lets see a catcher play an entire all star game in this era. Do you know who was the A.L. manager that year?

Yankees skipper Joe McCarthy was the AL manager. Bill Terry of the New York Giants was the NL manager.
