Hi, My grandfather was Larry Hannafin from Norfolk, CT. He played on the New Haven Blues Baseball team in 1901 with Jerry O-Connell (although they listed it as Jerry Connell). He played in the minor leagues for approximately 11 years. Last team he played on was the Portsmouth Truckers out of Virginia. We just discovered a baseball card that came out I think in 1910 on the Mills Cigarette Pack on E-bay today. My older brother is putting a bid on it, as we speak. I have a picture of the 1913 State of Connecticut Baseball Champions, Winsted, CT, but Jerry O-Connor is not in this photo.
