Thanks to Lou DeRosa and the Trail Museum and Archives we have the opportunity to showcase the 1931 Trail Baseball Club. The photos are taken from a composite done by Progress Studio in Trail at the end of the 1931 season which saw the club win the Canadian-Washington International League in competition with Nelson, BC, and three Washington clubs, Chewelah, Colville and Ione.. Above are catcher Slivers Decembrini and pitcher E. Christeson.
