For all the details about this team and those amazing uniforms, you must check out the incredibly detailed article written by Tom Shieber, Bagpipes and Baseball, or Clash of the Tartans. Tom is the senior curator at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and his blog Baseball Researcher was the original, unedited source for this fantastic photo. Cheers! ~B

1930's St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training
I was looking through my archives and I came by this great picture..the original posting of which was in need of a re-edit, so here it is. I'm not 100% sure about the year, but based on the uniforms (jerseys + socks) and the inclusion of Dizzy Dean and Gabby Street, it's very likely to be from 1933. Cheers! ~B
I have narrowed it down to either the 1930 or the 1932 team. Dizzy was on both teams. If you notice the guy in the top left, with his arms crossed and his cap on the side of his head? Only one guy ever wore his cap in such a silly fashion, and that was Sunny Jim Bottomley. Sure enough, Jim was on the team 1930-32. But Dean was not on the 1931 team. Right below Bottomley sits Frankie Frisch. Standing between Bottomley and the gentleman in the 10-gallon hat is manager, Gabby Street. Below Frisch looks a lot like Pepper Martin.

So we have Gabby Street, Jim Bottomly, Frankie Frisch, Mike Gonzales, Gus Mancuso, Dizzy Dean, and Pepper Martin who were all with the team in '32, so that's the most likely year for this picture. One possible problem to this theory is that the guy 5th from right standing on the bridge looks an awful lot like Taylor Douthit, who was gone by '32. But then again, it may not be him.
Update: Just read in "Diz" that Dean was at Spring training with the Cardnals in '31 and started the season with the team, but stayed on the bench, never pitched in game, and was sent down in May. Maybe that would explain why his name isn't showing up on the roster for '31. So this could very well be Spring '31. That would also explain why Dean is in the pictue, whyTaylor Douthit is in the picture, who was on the team in '31 but was gone by '32, and why Mike Gonzales is in the picture, who was with the team in '31 and '32.
I was also able to pick out another name: "Wild Bill" Hallahan, 8th from left, leaning on the rail.

For some reason, this particular photo is much darker than the original one BSmile posted. The first one was easier to see their faces.

Understood. I agree.
1944 Binghamton Triplets Team
1944 Triplets Team Stats
As World War II raged on, the talent level in the major leagues suffered, so it goes that it was even worse in the minors. Karl Drews looks like the player that went on to do the most (8 largely unamazing seasons in the majors), but at least the Triplets had guys like Bill Sucky, whose unfortunate name sadly seemed to sum things up just about right.

1941 Red Sox Team Stats
Everybody remembers the '41 Red Sox for Ted Williams' epic run at .400, but let's not forget that this team also had Jimmie Foxx, Joe Cronin, Bobby Doerr & Dom DiMaggio. If only the impending war wouldn't tear this lineup apart, which might be on the mind of super-spy Moe Berg as this picture was snapped. This would also be Lefty Grove's last season in the majors, one in which he held on long enough to finally capture his 300th (and final) win.
