    Here's a newly updated version of this great panorama for the 109th anniversary of this game from the old Exposition Park III, the Pirates home until the opening of Forbes Field in 1909.
    Here it is with a little more colorized with a blue sky...

    1939 East-West Negro League All-Star Game
    75 Years Ago Today - Comiskey Park, Chicago - August 6, 1939
    This picture shows the East Team before what would be the first of two All-Star Games that year. The West won, 4-2. Here's a recap from Baseball-Reference: 1939 East-West Gm. 1:
    "1939 marked the first year that there were two editions of the East-West Game. The first took place on August 6 at the usual location, Comiskey Park. The top vote-getters were 1B Ted Strong (508,327) and C Pepper Bassett (502,394). As usual, voting was done on a lower scale in the east. The top eastern vote-getter apparently was SS Willie Wells (226,514). The scoring started in the second against Theolic Smith. With one out, Buck Leonard reached when Strong (playing short) bobbled the ball. Pat Patterson singled and stole second, Leonard holding at third. Sammy T. Hughes then singled in the only two runs the East would score. Bill Byrd and Leon Day threw the first six scoreless for the East to make that 2-0 lead hold up, but in the 7th Roy Partlow ran into trouble. The West had just two hits before Neal Robinson led off the bottom of that frame with a long ball. In the 8th, pitcher Double Duty Radcliffe hit a single, then was bunted over by Parnell Woods. Dan Wilson then smacked one into the left-field grandstand for a 3-2 lead. The West tacked on one more and Radcliffe finished it up for the win."

    1916 Chicago White Sox & Friends Panoramic
    98 Years Ago Today - Comiskey Park, Chicago - August 9, 1916
    I thought it was time to revisit and re-edit an oldie for today, seeing as it's the 98th anniversary of the photo, from Post #59 April 2008, the 1916 Chicgao White Sox posing with, "Delegates to the Fourteenth Annual Convention of the National Rural Letter Carriers Association enjoying the National game at the Comiskey Park, Chicago, Ill., Wednesday, August Ninth, Nineteen Hundred and Sixteen"

    1904 Cincinnati Reds vs. New York Giants Panoramic

    "Polo Grounds, New York, New York - Cincinnati, National League Ball Game, Saturday, Aug. 13, 1904, Attendance 24,625"
    For its 110 anniversary, I decided to revisit and edit/colorize this classic panoramic from the LOC archives, you can see the original here: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/2007663699/. By the way, the Reds were victorious on this Saturday afternoon in New York, 2-1. Enjoy! ~B

    1904 Boston Americans vs. Chicago White Sox Panoramic
    110 Years Ago Today - South Side Park, Chicago - August 14, 1904
    "American League Park, Chicago, Boston and Chicago, Aug. 14, 1904, Attandance 30,198"
    For its 110 anniversary, here's another total re-edit of a classic panoramic from the LOC (original here: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/2007663978/). The Boston Americans (name changed to "Red Sox" in 1908) won that day, 5-2. There's a colorization of this one on-deck and coming soon. Cheers! ~B

    That's an interesting defensive shift in the 1904 Boston/Chicago photo in post #2183. The bases are loaded, and the outfielders are very shallow, which was normal in the deadball era, but it appears to me that the left fielder is in the lower center of the picture, and the center fielder is directly behind the shortstop, just a few strides onto the grass. The right fielder, I assume, is directly behind second base, at the edge of the grass. The first baseman is not holding the runner at first; instead, he is at the edge of the grass near the right field line. Around the base paths, the runner at first is talking to a coach, the second baseman is at the edge of the infield grass, the runner at second is just a few steps off the bag, the shortstop and third baseman are essentially in the base path, and the runner at third is standing on the base. This looks like it is the bottom-of-the-ninth, less-than-two-outs, with the score tied, and yet this must be the top of the inning, when Boston scored three runs on three singles, a double, and a sacrifice hit, according to Sporting Life. Chicago was scoreless in the bottom of the inning.

    The Boston player on first base has a glove on and looks like Candy LaChance.

    I agree that it looks like LaChance on the right, and it appears that he has a glove on his left hand. But LaChance is wearing dark socks, just like the player standing near second base and like the player standing on third base, who must be base runners. The outfielders are all wearing white socks, like the Chicago player to the left of LaChance. Is it possible that LaChance carried his glove (perhaps tied to his belt) when he batted and ran the bases? ...And regardless of which team is in the field, since we have established that there is no coach near first base, then there are four outfielders and four infielders in the picture. Sporting Life lists the umpire as Sheridan--Jack Sheridan was a regular AL umpire, so this is not a situation in which a player was pressed into umpiring duty. What was going on?

    There are 10 White Sox players on the field and the Boston player on third looks like he has a glove on his right hand. Maybe some practice with both teams before the game?

    It could be a pregame warm-up, but Jimmy Collins was not a left-handed third baseman. This is a tough one...

    To me it looks like Chick Stahl at third.

    I think it's more likely Jimmy Collins (as a base runner), with Freeman at second and LaChance at first following the three consecutive singles in the ninth inning; Ferris is at the plate about to hit a double to put the Americans ahead. The box score supports this hypothesis, but doesn't indicate that the White Sox were allowed to have four outfielders.

    Looks like you could be right. I just don't understand the 10 White Sox players on the field.

    1908 NY Giants vs. Chicago Cubs Panoramic
    106 Yrs Ago Today - West Side Grounds - August 30, 1908
    ~ Here’s an all-new edit of the,”National League Park Chicago”, taken on this day 106 years ago, during the Cubs last World Championship season. The original from the Library of Congress (LOC: National League Park, Chicago, Giants vs. Cubs, Aug. 30, 1908) was in pretty rough shape, so there was plenty of editing involved besides adding color. Enjoy! ~B
