Yup...pretty spectacular picture here. I left it in its original panoramic size.
Here's the explanation of the picture:
This simply remarkable panoramic photograph captures the greatest stars of the American League Dead Ball era, all of whom had convened at Cleveland's League Park on July 24, 1911 for a benefit game to raise money for the widow of Hall of Fame pitcher Addie Joss, whose life had been tragically cut short three months earlier in a virulent bout with meningitis. It must be noted that panoramic photographs were very expensive to produce at this time in history, and as such only those participating in the event were given a copy. Frank "Home Run" Baker's personal photo, offered here, is one of the very few to survive the many decades since. Baker is easy to spot, twelfth from right, dressed in the road grey uniform of his Philadelphia Athletics. Three men to his right is the great Walter Johnson in the midst of a season that saw him pitch six complete game shutouts. Other early gods of the diamond present include Shoeless Joe Jackson, Cy Young, Napoleon Lajoie, Eddie Collins, Smokey Joe Wood and the fiery Ty Cobb, who wears a borrowed Cleveland Naps jersey after forgetting to bring his Tigers togs to the ballpark. Behind the chicken wire that separates the stands from the playing field, scores of fans in dark suits and straw hats clamor to get a look at this outrageous assembly of talent, essentially the first All-Star Game in baseball history.
(btw....I found some more great Cobb pic's...they'll be up today as well)
The AL All-Stars are fairly easy to identify. Starting with where the Cleveland Indians' players leave off, (don't count their mascot), they are, starting 16th from the right:
L-R: Clyde Milan, Walter Johnson, Gabby Street, Bobby Wallace, Frank Baker, Jimmy McAleer (Mgr.), Sam Crawford, Tris Speaker, Hal Chase, Russel Ford, Smokey Joe Wood, Paddy Livingston, Germany Schaffer, Ty Cobb, Eddie Collins, Cleveland Indian Jack Graney.
For the historical record, Cy Young is 10th from the left, Joe Jackson is 11th from the left, and Nap Lajoie is 18th from the left.
