The world’s largest ballplayer, 1908

I came across this photo last night, depicting the world’s largest baseball player in 1908.  This young man weighed 450 pounds and played for the Citizens Baseball Team in Emporium, Pennsylvania.  I wish I could find more details about this guy, such as his name and maybe even a few statistics, but haven’t had much luck with my search.
