I'm currently researching Ray Chapman for a book and am particularly trying to track down images. This is one photo I hadn't seen before.
        Glad you've enjoyed them mollylawless!
        Ironically, I'm working on a better version of that picture. It's in my "On-Deck" file folder of unedited pic's. I'll be posting the whole image soon but here's a slice of that pano (with Ray) that I just edited:

        Is this a technically challenging procedure?

        Actually Bill, I've just tracked down much better/larger, original state versions of some of these pics (including the '16 Indians pic). So I'm not really working any special magic as such (strictly in regard to resizing up). Although, I have found some photos that are HUGE, that I've then resized down to a merely extremly large size (which of course, looks great!). There isn't really a way to greatly enlarge a photo without losing details, keeping perspective in mind. Like if you're looking at a good billboard from a distance, looks good and sharp/normal. Get right on top of it...and now you're staring at large pixels and blobs of color. You get the idea....

          As promised, a new, larger version of post #10. I love how Tuck Turner was crudely cut/paste into the photo back then. I wonder who he covering up? Not to mention that the person who did it put him in backwards! Anyways...Larry the Dog rules!

              • 1937 All-Star Game First Pitch From FDR - Washington DC
                OK, you can't actually see FDR...but this image (for me) really captures the spirit of old school baseball. I started to remove all the imperfections from this pic, but got bored (not that it's so bad). I have a hard time trying to name the players...only Joe McCarthy really stands out to me...and a very young Johnny Mize (24)

                Originally posted by Babefan

                Here's a few more possibilities:

                Going from left to right:

                Looks like Pepper Martin, partially obstructed by the first camera; then Jimmy Foxx, just behind the camera with the bulb; looks like Doc Cramer next to Foxx; Ernie Lombardi, full face with "Redlegs" visible on uniform; Bucky Walters, full face, with Phillies uniform visible.

                The little guy with the Pirates uniform is probably Paul Waner; then the last four guys in the group going after the ball: Wes Ferrell, with "W" on sleeve; probably Carl Hubbell; Johnny Mize; and Rick Farrell with two hands in front ready to catch, also with "W" on sleeve.

                The guy standing in full view with the Detroit unifrom is probably Gee Walker (the other Detroit players on the team were Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg, and Tommy Birdges, and I don't think this guy is any of them); then the guy in the A's uniform is probably Wally Moses (as he was the only A's player on the team); then Lou Gehrig, and Joe McCarthy.

                Can anybody dig out any more?

                The guy stretched way out going for the ball right in the middle, and the guy behind him also going for the ball are teammates as they have the same uniform on. Is that "Browns" or possibly "Giants"? Can anyone make out what uniform this is? If we can get that, we can probably identify these two guys.

                              The photographic equipment of that day was set on a tripod. It slowly panned from left to right. After the camera had left the far left side, the player at the end of the line would run behind the camera man and position them self at the far right side of the line.

                              So, when the camera got to that spot, it recorded the same guy. Ty Cobb used to enjoy pulling that exact same stunt. Thought he was clever, he did.

                              Understand?
