"My Father played on this team while employed as a coal miner in the Virden area. It is my understanding that the team was sponsored by one of the mining companies, and most if not all of the players were miners from the area. My Father was Joseph M. Mayernick (listed on picture as M. Mayernick) He played center on the team and was born and raised in Virden."
