Kind of mean to make Ken Reitz stand next to Parker, same with Garner and Carlton. Makes Parker look about 7 feet tall.
How many people remember Jose Cruz, near the far left in the middle row? Fantastic ballplayer whose numbers didn't look great because the Astrodome was his home park.

I was able to do most of the identifications, but everyone please feel free to jump in with any corrections or updates - especially because it's always harder to ID players when they're out of uniform and spiffed up, as is the case here.
