I’m always excited to get some new material up here, particularly stuff I was completely unaware of. The Manville Royals were a baseball team we have not seen on this site yet. Thankfully Rich Hamernik contributed these excellent photos, which he thinks are from the 20’s. I think I agree with him. Rich’s Grandfather Charlie “Butch” Hamernik was the team’s third baseman (and allegedly a pretty good one). Unfortunately I do not have a list of names for all of the folks on the team, but I’d love to update this post if anyone can identify them! In the meantime though here is a great photo of Charlie suited up for a game… as always click the photos to enlarge! These photos are awesome Rich! Thank you!
