This photograph from 1945 shows Topekan Ed Wilson (on the left) with an unidentified member of the Topeka Mosby-Macks, an American Legion baseball team that represented Capitol Post 1. The Mosby-Macks won the state Legion title in 1945 by defeating a team from Wichita. It was the third straight state championship for the Capitol Post 1 team; its streak would eventually extend to six consecutive state titles. 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.
