Thomas Philadelphia Am. (Ira Thomas or Ira Felix Thomas (1881-1958). Color portrait of Ira Thomas with the Philadelphia Athletics. An elephant is in the top left corner and 'Athletics' is in the top right. Verso: Ira Thomas. Ira Thomas, one of the Philadelphia Athletics' regular catchers, got into professional base ball with the Hartfords, of the Connecticut League in 1902. Afterwards he worked behind the bat for Newark and Providence, and in 1906 and 1907 for the New York Highlanders. In 1908 he caught 40 games for the Detroits, and in 1909 entered on his present engagement with the Athletics. His work for them has been of a high order. Examples of it were his throwing out Ty Cobb give times out of six in the last Detroit-Athletic series of 1910, and his masterly handling of pitching in the World's Championship Series with the Cubs.
