Carroll Ray "Dink" Mothell of the Kansas City Monarchs is featured in these two photographs. Mothell was a Topeka native who played professional baseball during the period 1920-1934. He was a member of the Monarchs for all or part of 12 seasons, including the 1924 team that defeated the Hilldale Athletic Club to claim the first-ever Colored World Series championship. In addition to the Monarchs, Mothell played for the Chicago American Giants, Gilkerson's Union Giants, Cleveland Stars, All Nations, Topeka Giants, and Chanute Black Diamonds. Although shown here in catcher's gear, Mothell was regarded as an outstanding utility player who could perform well at nearly all positions. 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.

Date: Between 1920 and 1934
