Kelly Jack Swift — Sports Illustrated

The October 17 edition of Sports Illustrated contains a terrific article about the career of Kelly Jack Swift, the last minor leaguer to win 30 games, in North Carolina Class D ball, in 1953.  The following season, Swift moved-up to Memphis, in the Southern Association, making him a potential Rickwood veteran.

The article captures fully the hey-day of minor league baseball.
