1926 Boston Red Sox Team
1926 Red Sox Team Stats
Well, it would be another last place finish for the ‘26 Red Sox. In fact, they would finish every season from 1919-1933 below .500, mostly due to them selling off every good player from the organization, starting with Babe Ruth after the ‘19 season.

#1669, you listed Del Baker as manager, front row, fourth from the left. The manager listed should be Steve O'Neill. Baker was with the Detroit Tigers as a coach to manager, Mickey Cochrane.

These photos continue to be of great interest; thanks for them.
One question: why is it that in such a high percentage of the time, major league teams had their pictures taken wearing their road uniforms?

It seems like a lot of old baseball photos were taken in New York ballparks. You can see evidence of that quite a bit in the 1950's-70's Topps baseball cards, most of the pictures were taken in Yankee Stadium and the Polo Grounds/Shea.

1952 Chicago White Sox Team
1952 White Sox Team Stats
Now even though this picture is dated as 1952, this might actually be the '1951 squad. Why? It's because if you look closely you'll notice that the team is wearing the American League Golden Anniversary Patch on their sleeves which was only worn in 1951. Plus, the photo was clearly taken at Comiskey Park in Chicago...so what do you guys think, '51 or '52?

Chicago vs. Cincinnati - Attendance 27, 366
After a bit of a dry spell...here's an all-new, never-been-posted panoramic! It celebrates the 1st game at Redland Field, which was built over the bones of the Palace of the Fans and League Park. After the team was purchased by Powel Crosley, Jr. in 1934, the ballpark would be renamed Crosley Field. Enjoy! ~B

The Brooklyn composite is actually the 1899 team, the champions for 1900. The picture includes Doc McJames, Jim Hughes, and John Anderson, who all played for the team in 1899 but not in 1900, and excludes Jimmy Sheckard and Lave Cross, who did not play for the Superbas in 1899 but were with them in 1900.
It's a great picture, and there is also a composite still in existence of the 1900 team (who also won the league championship), but I have yet to see a group photograph of the team from either season. Somewhere out there these photos must exist...

Plenty of future MLB talent on this squad, none more notable than "The Golden Greek", Harry Agganis (back row, 5th from left). 1953 marked Harry's only season in the minors after being Boston University's first ever Football All-American (and 1st round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns). He then moved up to the Boston Red Sox in 1954-55 before his life was tragically cut short by a pulmonary embolism on June 27, 1955. He was only 26 years old.
