These two photographs from 1947 show unidentified individuals involved with the Topeka Owls minor league baseball organization. The photograph of the two men was taken at Owl Park in Topeka, Kansas. Since the other photo includes players dressed in both Topeka and Miami uniforms, it probably was taken during spring training. The Miami, Oklahoma, team was an affiliate of the Topeka Owls, and the teams trained together in Miami before the start of the regular season. Both photos appear in Topekan Lee Dodson's scrapbook about the 1947 season (Kansas Memory item number 309108). Digital reproduction of the photographs was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.
