Photo is ca. 1910 - Prout was the manager of the team. The image below is from Spalding's Official Baseball Guide, 1910 and lists a few of the Hannibal players.

I have no further information about these men or the baseball team itself - would like to determine the year and more information about the players - were they local boys?

Please let me know if you have any information, thank you!
