The photograph was published in the 1916 Kansas Jayhawker, page 185. Adrian "Ad" Lindsey was a three-sport athlete at the university, lettering in football, basketball, and baseball. He played minor league baseball for a few years, but was best known as a football player and coach.

Warren Gill of the Washburn baseball team

Warren Gill of the Washburn baseball team
Date: 1901
The original of this photograph showing Warren Gill is in the University Archives at Washburn University's Mabee Library, which supplied the digital copy for display on Kansas Memory. Requests for permission to use the image should be directed to the Washburn University Archives. This photograph from 1901 features Warren Gill, captain of the Washburn College baseball team. Gill left Washburn in the spring of 1902 to pursue a professional baseball career that would include at least seven minor league teams, as well as a brief stint with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1908. While in Pittsburgh, Gill became involved in a play that now stands as a footnote to one of the most famous blunders in major league history, the Fred Merkle "bonehead play." Merkle, a player with the New York Giants, made a base-running error in a game against the Cubs that cost his team the game-winning run and ultimately the 1908 National League pennant. As the runner at first base, Merkle failed to touch second base following a hit that should have scored the runner at third base with the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning. Because Merkle didn't complete the play, he was called out when the opposing Cubs player tagged second base. Hank O'Day, the umpire making the call, had been involved in an identical play a few weeks earlier in a game between the Cubs and the Pirates. In that game, Warren Gill was the runner on first base and he, too, failed to touch second base in the same situation. However, O'Day did not see Gill's mistake, and refused to call him out, thus resulting in a win for the Pirates over the objections of the Cubs. The controversial play involving Gill placed a heightened focus on the rule, especially on the part of O'Day and the Cubs players. Warren Gill played in 27 games for the Pirates in 1908, but most of his professional baseball career was in the minor leagues, where he logged over 1100 games between 1902 and 1913. Following his baseball days, Gill had a career as a dentist.
