This post is the eighth in our series of ten new features for our tenth anniversary.
Every once and awhile an e-mail drops into my inbox that is wholly unexpected and opens up the possibility of something on the site I hadn't imagined before. David Davis (who is now a hero of mine) sent me one such e-mail. David has put together a mammoth set of files that has small headshot photos of about 90% of the players in major league history. Even better, it was structured in such a way to make placing them onto the site relatively easy.
Due to copyright concerns for more recent photos, we are currently only showing photos for pre-1960 debuts. This represents thousands of photos. You can see photos of players from Cap Anson to Don Zimmer, but we don't yet have Aardsma to Zimmerman. This may change in the future when I've had a change to weigh the issues. Until then, enjoy putting a face to players who for too long were just numbers on a page.
