Three pictures of gravesites have been added to the list.  They include Dick Kenworthy, a native of Red Oak IA and third baseman who played 125 games for the White Sox in the 1960's.  Kenworthy is buried in Red Oak. 

Lynn King was an outfielder who played 240 games for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1935 to 1939.  King was born in Villisca IA and is buried there.

The third is Gil Paulsen who pitched two innings for the 1925 Cardinals in his first year in professional baseball.  Paulsen allowed no earned runs so he has a 0.00 ERA for his brief major league career.  He continued to pitch in the minor leagues until 1932 but never returned to the major leagues (There must be a story there somewhere).  Paulsen was born in 1902 in Graettinger IA, died in 1994 at the age of 92 in Harlan IA and is buried in Marne IA.

The pictures were taken by Jim Simmelink of Adair IA.  To view the pictures go to the list under the "Iowa" heading and click on "Iowa Baseball Gravesites.
