I have been told that my Grandfather, John C. HANSEN was the pitcher for a MN State Champion Baseball team. The team was based out of Lake Benton, MN. Can anyone help me find out if he was on the team - and if there are any photos I would love to get copies. John lived in the Lake Benton area between 1900-1916 so that is when he would have been on the team. Thank you for any help.
