Sports Center - Baseball - Cherokee, Texas - 1927

This is a photo of the Cherokee High School Baseball Team in 1927.  

My father, Richard Robbins, is standing on the far right. 
He would have been almost 18 in this picture since he was born in May 1909.
Unfortunately the picture is not labeled so the names of the others are unknown. 
I wonder what teams/towns they played and if there are records of what kind of season they had.
It seems his friends all had nicknames, but I can't remember any except my dad's - Cock Robin - which was shortened to Coxsy.
Why is there a woman with the team?
Isn't the bat boy cute!

  1. There are some sites that scan yearbooks. Perhaps you could fine some local group that had done this.
