Florence Institute Dingle (Florrie)

Some years ago I received via e-mail from the USA, a photograph of a Baseball team which was based at the Florrie in the early thirties. One of the "boys" on the picture was the sender. 
Sadly he must have died as I lost contact. And due to changes to computers etc I no longer have the picture or the man's name.

My point being, that as one who played some baseball in Liverpool in the 1940s, I was not aware the Florrie ever had such a team. 
One of life's little mysteries I suppose.
