Old players?

Anyone recommend a way to find old team rosters? I'm searching for a player whose name I don't know but whose number and team I do. Also, not the specific year(s) played, but an estimate. Suggestions?

First of all welcome to the forum. If you know the team number and year try google. If that doesn't work post the info you do have and ill do the leg work and try and figure it out for you. .

The player is #29 from the Modesto A's in the early 1980's. I come up with (google) the team roster for all years, but no numbers...

Hmm ... So it's not that I'm inept, it actually is a difficult question. Any ideas how to find out? The team doesn't 'officially' exist anymore. They moved to Stockton and are now the Ports, but Modesto's still got a team, the Nuts. Contact them, you think?

You aren't inept at all, but it's just with the limited type of information you have it does indeed make it a difficult question. Good Luck!
