Lee Roberts Later in Life

Lee "Reddy" Roberts

Fargo pitcher/manager Lee Roberts (far right) with his son Vern (mid-right), grandson Ken (mid-left), and mother Matilda (left). Lee reminds me of Connie Mack in this picture, but it's probably just because of his hat. But maybe he has that "field general" quality, too - he was Fargo's manager for several years. Lee was about 56 years old when this photo was taken. Strong hand-eye coordination apparently ran in Lee's family. His son Vern was an accomplished pilot.

The photo was taken in Fargo in 1927.
Thanks to Hubbard Neighbour of Moline, IL for locating this picture for me.
