Knoxville Sand-Lots Productive

The Evening Repository (Canton, Ohio) - August 14, 1930

    The scouts might have thought them good enough to play in professional ball, but it appears that only two of them made it.  At least I could only find two of them on Baseball-Reference.com.

    Here's a clipping about Claude Capps moving to the Reidsville Luckies in 1940.  He'd play for three teams in two different leagues that year.

    And one about Loy Atchley.  Baseball-Reference.com doesn't have a death date for Loy.  According to the Social Security Death Index he died on September 6, 1994, most likely in Knox County, TN.
