Volunteers Needed for early Minor League Roster Project

Marc Okkonen has compiled a fairly extensive master list of all minor leaguers from 1900-1906 along with team rosters for most leagues. Although far from 100% completion and accuracy, much first name info is included and Marc is anxious to share his findings with anyone who is researching minor leagues of that era. For example if you have a team photo with last names only, he can fill in many first names for you and can also do the same for league statistics.

At the same time getting input from local researchers on particular teams and leagues might also fill in a lot of blanks for Marc
