Looking for Sports research sites

One of my relatives is said to have played on a semi pro baseball team in Waco Texas and later played for a brief time for the White Sox. So far I am having a hard time verifying this information. I would think the time period that he would be playing in would be 1890-1915.

Any assistance on this would be very appreciated.

Wikipedia has quite a lot of White Sox history as well as articles about semi-pro ball clubs in Waco. Contact the clubs and ask if your ancestor played for them.

You might also try posting on the McLennan County, Texas board. Include your ancestor's name and whatever info you have about him. Perhaps someone with local knowledge can point you in the right direction.

Good luck!
