H. Sullivan is the catcher, Haywood Sullivan who, years later, and inexplicably, became a part-owner of the Red Sox.
Wiki: Haywood Sullivan
Starting with this: "...In November 1965, he was recruited by the Red Sox, who had reorganized their front office under new general manager Dick O'Connell. As vice president, player personnel, Sullivan was positioned as the top "baseball man" in the organization, and from 1965-67 was instrumental in acquiring several players from the Athletics (such as Josť Santiago, John Wyatt, Josť Tartabull and Ken Harrelson) who would help lead Boston to its surprise 1967 AL pennant. But O'Connell gradually assumed more power and took over most of Sullivan's responsibilities; during the early 1970s, Sullivan kept his title but in reality became the Red Sox' director of amateur scouting. Despite his decline in overall authority, Sullivan maintained very close personal ties with owner Tom Yawkey and his wife, Jean. In 1977, a year after Tom Yawkey died of leukemia, the Red Sox were put up for sale. Sullivan — reportedly borrowing $100,000 and using his home as collateral — joined an ownership group organized by former Red Sox athletic trainer Edward "Buddy" LeRoux. Because of Sullivan's close friendship with Jean Yawkey, the LeRoux offer was accepted, even though it was not the highest bid and the group did not have the financial resources of some of its rivals. The American League initially rejected the deal, but reconsidered when Mrs. Yawkey joined the group as a third general partner in 1978..."

Years ago I had dinner with Ferguson, McBride (and Sibby Sisti) at the home of a neighbor who, as a Tim McAuliffe employee, modeled the first Angels uniform for the team management. Time really flies!
Thank you, Joe Barrie.

Yup, that's 19 yr. old Roberto Clemente (seated, front row-left side) during his time as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers organization, who had signed him for a salary of $5K (and a $10K bonus). That required the Dodgers to keep Roberto on the big league roster or risk losing him to the off-season draft, which they did, to the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1955.

The photographs of the 1962 and 1964 Red Sox show equipment manager Don Fitzpatrick, who molested a number of black boys over a 20-year period. Many feel that the team and the management knew about his behavior and never acted on it.
Money eventually changed hands, but some lives were ruined. Those covering for him were never charged. He died years ago.
Sounds like Jerry Sandusky and his enablers, doesn't it?
