Did you know that Sid Farrar was the father of Geraldine Farrar, one of the leading operatic and concert singers of the first half of the 20th century? When Sid had finished playing baseball, he sold his habadashery in Massachusetts and he and his wife accompanied Geraldine to Europe where she trained and became a major figure, particularly in Germany. When the family returned to the U.S., Geraldine was a mainstay at the Metropolitan Opera, frequently performing with Enrico Caruso. Sid followed her career closely, attending most of her performances, and old ballplayers often attended too, hoping to meet Sid afterwards.
