Recap

Well, things have slowed down here a bit for the 1924 Seattle Indians blog. I didn't realize how much work it would be when I started trying to provide an in depth recap for every single game. Nonetheless, I am committed to that, as I think it is the best way to understand the season and place the 'information' in context. For instance, Sacramento pitcher 'Chief' Moses Yellow Horse was the first full-blooded Native American to play MLB baseball. That is, as far as anyone knows. However, there is so much more going on in that statement than one can imagine. For instance, the distance of time from today to April 1924, 88 years, is the same distance from that time to 1836. I don't know about you, but the last 88 years of my family is pretty important to where I ended up today. So what happened to Moses Yellow Horse's family, and did he carry that with him from Oklahoma to Pennsylvania to Sacramento? In 1924, the Indian Citizenship Act became law on June 2. How many baseball players in history had an act of Congress push citizenship on them? 1836 was a year roughly in the middle of the first phases of the Indian Removal Act of 1830. Those 'removals' took place between 1831 and 1838 initially. That's the Trail of Tears. There were more tears, however. Among them were the Pawnee of Nebraska, who were 'relocated' in the 1870s to Oklahoma, which was now the Indian Territory. But, of course, that land was needed and eventually you end up with the State of Oklahoma. But, Chief Yellowhorse, as he was called, this is his history. His family. His world. More on all of this later. I think all of these games highlight such stories, and its good to have the context of where people came from and what the world was like in which they lived. I'm not a professional historian, but I am a slow one.

Recap: Still, we are following the Seattle Indians here, on their way to a championship season. I am slowing down here while I do some research on contemporary baseball. I will be starting another blog for all that other stuff.
