Bloomington Boys Visit Wrigley Field September 13, 1947

Junior baseball player meets Chicago Cubs player, 1947.

Back on September 14 we showed another photo from this day when four Bloomington Junior Legion ballplayers were treated to a Chicago Cubs-Philadelphia Phillies game at Wrigley Field.
Seen here is local boy Bob Lemme with Cubs right fielder Bill “Swish” Nicholson, one of his favorite players. Nicholson, by the way, played in the 1945 World Series, the last time the Cubs appeared in the “Fall Classic.”
