Galesburg's adopted son Evar Swanson elaborated during a baseball discussion in 1972 why he entered a contest for "running the bases" while playing Major League Baseball for the Cincinnati Reds.
During games of a doubleheader on September 15, 1929, Swannie circled the 360-foot jaunt around the bases in 13.3 seconds. Although several have tried to excel the feat, the record still stands 83-years later.
Swannie pointed out that in the earlier days contests including foot races, fungo-hitting, homer hitting, bunting and catchers throwing into barrels were common. He admitted that, "although we participated for our pride, we also did it for the money. I made $75 for winning my base-running contest and that was pretty good money in those days. The most I ever made in one season playing professional baseball was $8,500 a season."

You are welcome, Mel. Thank you for setting up the page, and leaving such a lovely memorial with the Colt's insignia on it. I was touched to see that. Uncle Harry and Aunt Nell were a huge part of my life, and I spent a lot of time with them.

|Pam Foster||RE: Russell Mayo Lyon|
Dear Sir. Thank you so very much for the photo of Russell Mayo Lyno. I will add it to my book.
My Father, Fletcher Adam Chaffin also played in our Mills Mill League in Woodruff, SC. I know everything in the world about him. I only have one picture of him and it was when he was a Mills Mill Miller player. Do you have any other pictures of him in his baseball uniform? Many thanks. Pam Foster

Am trying to get a photo of Mr. Lyon. I know all his background in baseball, but I do not have a picture of him. I am writting a book about textile baseball in my home town along with other chapters of interests. Please if you know anyone who would have a picture please advise me of a way to get a photo of him.

Glad to help! And thank you for linking to his parents. That is very unfortunate about him being a fatality in the drag race.

You are very welcome! Yes, a very unfortunate accident. I used to go to Summerduck Dragway frequently. I did not know Mitchell personally, but am sure he is missed greatly.

Mel, I'm sorry . I sent you one photo of the headstone and they would not let me post the other one. The other one is just the headstone and you can read it just fine. The first one I took was an overall view to show you all the flowers recently laid there.
Send me an email and I will send you the other photo, OK?

Immediately next to Danny's graveis the gravestone of James and Bobbie Jenkins (presumably his parents). I took a photo of it if you would like it.
