This is a studio portrait of Carroll Ray "Dink" Mothell from Topeka. As a younger man, Mothell played baseball for the Kansas City Monarchs during 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. His professional baseball career spanned the period 1920-1934. 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. Mothell was regarded as an outstanding utility player who could perform well at nearly all positions. Digital reproduction of the photograph was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.
