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.
Top Row, L-R: Gene Martin (Mgr.), Dick Baker (SS), Frank Silvanic (OF), Charles Mistos (P), John Greenwald (1B), Karl Drews (P), Bill Sucky (P), Leo Righetti (3B), Bob Crow (OF), Hugh Taylor (C), William O'Donnell (trainer).
Bottom Row, L-R: Lynn Johnson (2B), Billy Cronin (C/Captain), Giles Knowles (P), John Moore (P), Peter Kunis (P), Thomas Grace (P), Joseph Passero (OF), Arnold Cohen (OF).
Sitting on ground, in front. Steve Tokas (bat boy).

I think you're correct about their uniforms, 1954 was the first year that "Athletics" appeared across their jerseys.

1941 Boston Red Sox Team
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.

It's funny, the only two players in this picture who aren't wearing their Yankees jerseys are Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig. Then again, they were kind of a big deal.

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.
