      Others in the picture I can pick out are Wagner, Ginger Beaumont, Claude Ritchey, Tommy Leach, Ed Smith, Deacon Phillippe, Kitty Brainsfield, Fred Clarke.

      I believe this picture is actually mislabeled...it says "Pittsburg 1904 National League Champions." This has to be a mistake because the Pirates weren't the pennant winners in 1904...the Giants were. Also, Doheny wasn't on the '04 team. Due to the youthful appearance of the players, I believe this picture is actually the '01 or '02 pennant winning team. I don't think it's the '03 team. I've seen pictures of the '03 team and these guys are definitely at a younger age.

      And I think you're probably right...This is most likely the 1903 "Defending" National League Champions of 1904.

      Thanks again!

        • Uniforms

          Does anyone know who designed the uniforms for the different teams? Was someone from the fashion world hired or did the owners just come up with it themselves? Great pics BS! .. - babefan

          • "I believe this picture is actually mislabeled...it says "Pittsburg 1904 National League Champions." This has to be a mistake because the Pirates weren't the pennant winners in 1904...the Giants were."

            Absolutely true...and the only guess that I can muster is that the picture composite was for the upcoming 1904 season and that the Pirates were the defending champions. Of course, there isn't any other info from my source about the picture (as is ofter the case)...so for now I'll consider my theory as the strongest possibility. It's STILL a pretty awesome picture though. To add to it, here's the 1904 Washington Senators Team
            They, of course, made no such championship claims as they finished the year 38-113 (yikes).

                          Thanks so very, very much Gary! You just don't know how much I appreciate all your hard work. In support of BSmile I have tried to keep up with him in posting a summary of names/positions captioning for those team posts which give us the names.

                          It is so much easier to see if they are typed out, and also to let us know what positions they played at. But alas, I am falling behind in my promises.

                          Is there anyone out there who could do some of this work for us?? Here are the posts that still lack the names/positions 'matrix'. If no one comes forth, I will get to it but might take me awhile. I'm buried in other stuff right now.


                          Bill
                          You got it Bill!...That's all I needed to hear - that you guys need some help. I love the challenge of trying to put names with faces on old basball photos.

                          Glad to pitch in after all the hard work and wonderful job that you guys have done for us. I'll start with the Cub teams of '32, '35, and '38. I'll get on it right away and see what I can come up with!

                          Wow!...This thread, along with Bill's Historic Archival Photos thread, are real treasures. Those of us who love the "Old Days" of baseball are eternally grateful to both of you! I doubt there's a better collection of old baseball photos anywhere.

                          • Gee, thanks so much from the bottom of my heart, Gary! Captioning takes time, but once a team is 'done', it's done permanently, for all of us to use in the future. That's the logistical support I'm trying to give BSmile, since he's doing the yeoman work of doing the searches, touching up the photos, and posting these fantastic images.

                            And just in case anyone doubts it, these images will serve as a magnet to the whole baseball fandom community. Word of mouth is going out and our numbers are swelling, thanks to BSmile and George H. Ruth!!!

                            So, this is the least we can do to show our mutual, collective appreciations to them both!!

                            Bill

                              • Thanks so much to Bill and Gary for their tireless efforts to provide the fine details (names/positions) for the team pic's that I've been posting! It does, as Bill mentioned, take a lot of time to track down these pictures...and even much more time to properly edit/correct them in the visual sense. So I really do appreciate their work as well as the heartfelt thanks I've received from so many people for posting them. It really has been a blast sharing these images with a community of fans who truly love seeing them as much as I do.

                                Anyways, thanks again and more to come later today.

                                Cheers! ~B
