The Dominican “Home Boys”

At Ocean City the summer residence for the student brothers from the Dominican House of Studies had been used as an orphanage or a ‘home’, which is why the Dominican baseball team was known to the locals as the “Home Boys.” Thanks to the owner of the Boston Red Sox, discarded Red Sox uniforms were sent to the Dominicans. In the early 1920s discarded uniforms were also obtained from the Washington Senators.
The above photo shows the team put out by the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C., in 1933. Makes you wonder how many future theologians were on that lineup!
