Beautiful c. 1908 action photo of a major league baseball game and showing a close play at first base. Action photographs from this time are rare and this one is fantastic. Extensive research indicates this is almost certainly the first baseman as Hal Chase of the Highlanders while another period notation identifies the base runner as Jimmy Burke. More research is needed but the quality is great and this could be a gem as images of Chase are extremely rare and highly sought after!
