We previously discussed the emergence of Joplin’s first professional baseball team, the Colts who soon after became the Miners. After some research, we uncovered what appears to be the schedule for the team that season in the Missouri Valley League.
In the earlier post, we offered a team photo from that year. To keep things fresh, we’ve added a photograph of the 1904 team. A glance between the supplied rosters for the teams reveals some old faces and some new.
