Daily Conlon: 262 through 270

Here are todays Daily Conlon cards numbered 262 through 270 that features former Dodger Ed Konetchy. It is a All-Time Leader card highlighting his 10 consecutive hits in 1919 as a member of the Brooklyn Robins. Again, the conlon card pictures him in a uniform other than the Dodgers even though he achieved the record with them.

Of special note, Konetchy was a bit of a hero. In 1910, as a member of the Cardinals, he helped rescue numerous passengers aboard a train crash. Along with manager Roger Bresnahan they led an effort to carry the injured to safety.
