William Bert Hart is pictured here as a member of the 1920 Beloit Leaguers baseball team. With Hart as its regular shortstop and occasional pitcher, the Leaguers claimed the "independent state championship of Kansas" that year. Bert Hart was a well-known semi-professional baseball player in northern Kansas during the 1910s and early 1920s. He played not only for Beloit, but also for semi-pro teams in Green and Clay Center, as well as the Westmoreland town team. Hart spent most of his work career employed at the post office in Westmoreland; he and his wife Margaret also operated a hotel and restaurant there for several years during the 1940s.
