Eddie Shore before Hockey

What true blue hockey fan has not heard of Eddie Shore who played as defenseman for the Boston Bruins from 1926-1940, jersey number 2. But what of Eddie before hockey?

Below is a photo of Eddie age 13, about 1915 as cowboy. The photo was taken in Cupar.
Another photo this time in a Cupar baseball team photo from 1923 shows him front row left

Like many small town sports heroes Cupar has their own special display, many of the items were contributed by the Shore family. If you are ever in the area this summer come check it out.
