Grover Cleveland Alexander’s Charity

Grover Cleveland Alexander’s Charity Work

Here we have Hall of Fame pitcher Grover Cleveland ‘Pete’ Alexander, flanked by two flappers raising pre-game money in Sportsmans Park in St. Louis. They look so clean, alert and wholesome, holding their “Give For Health” donation cans, as they flank a ballplayer who looks like a walking hangover. Look deep into his eyes, and what do you see? To me, remembering Alexander did not often avoid inebriants, it looks like on the night before this 1927 shot was taken, he must have been busy at the bar.
