The New York Yankees of the American League play against the Houston Buffaloes of the Texas League at West End Park in Houston during a February 21, 1914 exhibition game. The Yankees held spring training at the Houston ballpark that season. Pictured are Houston catcher Charles W. Seitz sliding and New York catcher Bill Reynolds catching. Interesting that 100 years later, the Yanks find themselves playing baseball in Houston, and this time it counts. Photo: Library of Congress.
