Penobscots honor Maine athletes

Indian Island, Maine (AP) 8-09

Leaders of the Penobscot Indian Nation in Maine are calling attention to the contributions of tribal members Louis Sockalexis and his cousin Andrew Sockalexis.

On July 28, the leaders held a news conference at the Indian Island grave site of Louis Sockalexis, who played professional baseball for the Cleveland Spiders a century ago.

They will receive a resolution passed by the Maine Legislature during June calling on the Baseball Hall of Fame, the Cleveland Indians and Sports Illustrated to respect and to honor the athletic achievements of Sockalexis and his cousin, Andrew, who competed in the 1912 Olympic marathon in Sweden and in two Boston Marathons.
