Ed Wolf

Ed Wolf was a catcher with the 1961 Jacksonville Jets, the only minor league team with which he would see playing time. The photo on the left shows him signing a Houston Colts contract soon after he has departed from the University of Cincinnati. It's a classic pose with the major league scout hovering over him as he signs. The photo appeared in the Raleigh Register (Beckley, WV) of July 6, 1961, among other newspapers.

The photo on the right shows him in the uniform of the University of Cincinnati baseball team. It's from the Cincinnati Enquirer of April 27, 1961.

Hal Norris

For those interested in the 1961 Jacksonville Jets (if anyone is besides Lumpkin), I suggest you go back one page to the posting for Hal Norris, as I've added an improved photo to that posting.

Dave Jacobs

Dave Jacobs was playing second base and shortstop when he was with the 1961 Jacksonville Jets. However, back when he was with the 1954 Burlington-Graham Pirates, he was a first baseman. He is shown in the first baseman's pose in this photo from the April 25, 1955 issue of the Greensboro (NC) Daily News, when he was still with Burlington-Graham.

Here is an Interesting story on Richard Towers. Born Jan. 2, 1945 Graduated from Paris, Tx High school in 1962. Went to Univ. of Alabama on a baseball scholarship, transferred to East Texas State and graduated with double majors. At the age of 25 hadn't touched a baseball in four years and was an Assistant Manager of a Steel Plant in Longview Texas. and got the urge to get back into baseball. He took a vacation to Shreveport were the Atlanta AA team played. He went and ask for a tryout, he got that tryout and was signed by scout Clint Courtney. 30 minutes after he signed that contract he was starting a game for Shreveport (August, 1970). Pitched 5 inning of 2 hit shutout ball before being removed. He was a NRI for the 1972 Braves. He pitched in their system 1970-1972. Photos are from 1961-62 Paris Texas High School. Had a career 14-8 record with 12 svs. 4.08 E.R.A for the Braves System.
