    1921 Old Timer's Baseball Team
    Cleveland, Ohio's 125th Anniversary
    Dunn Field, July 29, 1921
    Old Timers 11 - Former Amateurs 8


    This photo was restored and posted by BSmile on the Vintage Panoramic Pictures thread in the Baseball Photography forum. It features many of the players from the Bluebirds, Bronchos, and Naps franchise that had become known as the Indians in 1915, a few players from the Cleveland franchise that had competed in the American Association and the National League in the 19th Century*, one player who had played for the Cleveland entry in the Players' League (Larry Twitchell), a couple of other ex-major-leaguers who never played for a Cleveland team (Nick Altrock and Red Nelson), and a few players who apparently were part of the "Former Amateurs".

    *A photo thread devoted to the 19th Century Cleveland Blues/Spiders is found at: http://www.baseball-fever.com/showth...-Blues-Spiders

    I have indicated below the years that each man played for a Cleveland major league team and whether that team was the AA/NL franchise, the PL franchise, or the AL franchise.
    Left to right: Heinie Berger Jr. (mascot), Heinie Berger (pitcher, AL 1907-1910), J. Seward** (pitcher), E. Kemper (shortstop), Frank Knauss (pitcher, NL 1891, 1894), Charlie Hickman (first base, AL 1902-1904, 1908), Rosenbach (catcher), Bill Bradley (third base, AL 1901-1910), Jesse Burkett (left field, NL 1891-1898), Chief Zimmer (catcher, AA/NL 1887-1899), Neal Ball (shortstop, AL 1909-1912), J. Streif*** (coach), Cy Young (pitcher, NL 1890-1898, AL 1909-1911), T. Hendricks (manager), Nap Lajoie (second base, AL 1902-1914), Nick Altrock (pitcher), Larry Twitchell (left field, NL 1889, PL 1890), Harry Bay (center field, AL 1902-1908), Elmer Flick (right field, AL 1902-1910), Bunk Congalton (right field, AL 1905-1907), Terry Turner (shortstop, AL 1904-1918), Harris (right field), Paddy Livingston (catcher, AL 1901, 1912), Earl Moore (pitcher, AL 1901-1907), Ollie Pickering (center field, NL 1897, AL 1901-1902), Gatch (catcher), Red Nelson (pitcher), and Chief Zimmer Jr. (mascot).
    **Possibly Ed Seward (pitcher, NL 1891)
    ***Possibly Oscar Streit (pitcher, AL 1902)
