While many youngsters of the Eastside are
contented with memories of having seen the Baltimore Orioles as they won the
International League flag and the Little World's series last year, 10-year-old
F. Donald Collins, of 519 N. Kenwood Ave., goes them one better.
The son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank W. Collins, the lad is proud owner of a souvenir
badge of the champion Orioles of 1894. he also has an engraved invitation
from the directors of the Baltimore club to the opening game with Boston for the
year of 1897.
They were given to him by his great-uncle, Charles
S. Reinhart of 620 Turnbridge Road, as a remembrance of his younger days when
the Birds had a truly great ball club.
