Spring Training Oddities #1: It Was The One-Armed Man
That's from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, March 21st, 1937. That's right, a baseball team consisting solely of one-armed players. I love how their mascot is a three-legged dog! And I like to think that in the top-right picture, the equipment guy is giving the player shit about having one arm, at which point the dude pulls his waistband out and says "yeah, and I got one dick, too!"
This pre-dated Pete Gray's major league debut by a few years.
I can't find too much online about "White's One-Armed Wonders," but I did find this article about a one-armed team (with a cooler name) from the 1990s.
