That's a great photo HG. Fairbanks is wearing a Vernon Tigers uniform, but I don't know about Sunday's uniform. Your grandfather was tall!

If the photo was taken no later than 1920, it appears they're playing in Washington Park (I), south of Washington Blvd and between Grand and Main. But if the photo was taken
after 1920, it would be Washington Park (II), which was a couple hundred feet southeast of Washington Park (I).
