Kathy Pinna Janet - so the picture of "Moose" McCormick that you uploaded today (with his brothers and sister) is the same Moose who is in this picture and played baseball? That is so cool - and so neat to see pictures of him at a young age. What a fascinating family tree you have! Thank you for connecting the two pictures!

Janet Kliven Thanks, My mother used to mention her Uncle Moose, but never said he played for the NY Giants. I did not find out until a friend, Bill Murray, the comedian, knew all about him. He is a sports buff. He gave me the baseball encyclopedia that has his stats in it. It is just recent past year that I started looking up info about him on the internet. My husband at first did not believe that it was the same person until I showed him Harry's info that I had on him in some old papers of my Mothers and found the old photo of him as a boy.
