Smokey Joe in Seguin


This is the first post on my blog, which focuses on the life and times of a great ballplayer from Seguin, Texas named Joe Williams. In his playing days he was known as "Cyclone" or "Smokey" Joe Williams. You can read about his career at the Baseball Hall of Fame.

This may be the only photo of Joe in Seguin. He is walking south on Austin St., toward his home on S. Guadalupe St. The photo, found at our local Heritage Museum, was taken about 1903.

Hope you enjoy the blog. I have been reserching the life of Joe Williams since 1998, and will post some of my research here.
