      I think he may have been an early relative of Hannibal Lechter!

      Could this be a catcher's mask?

      Not only could it be, it is a catcher's mask!

      Wonder why Vic Willis (who was a pitcher) was wearing a catcher's mask.

      I never met Vic Willis, but he is my great grandfather--my dad's grandfather. I went to Cooperstown to see his plaque, and was surprised by somebody that took our picture because he was trying to find family of Vic Willis. I have never seen this photo, so I am blown away with amazement. Thank you.
