The Springfield Ponies was the primary name of minor league baseball teams based in Springfield, Massachusetts that played between 1893 and 1943. The team played its home games at Pynchon Park in Springfield. They finished atop the Eastern League standings three times at the end of a full regular season (1895, 1908, 1911) and once at the end of a truncated regular season (1932). Offered here is an unperforated ticket to a Springfield Baseball Club game at around the turn of the last century. Printed on the ticket is the name of the club’s manager, Roger Connor, who skippered the team from 1902 to 1903. Connor, based on his prior, 18-year MLB career as a power-hitting first baseman, was inducted into Cooperstown in 1976 by the Veterans Committee. With the exception of one rough edge, the ticket remains in excellent condition.
