    Player identifications are pretty tricky, as we all know. We all use our own subjective AND objective criteria. That guy in the top row, right, looks an awful lot like Duffy Lewis. I think this way because of his rounded face.

    And one of the subjective things I use a lot is facial expressions. You can tell a lot by one's smile. And this guy is smiling a Duffy Lewis, 'aw shucks' kind of Opie Taylor kind of smile. I know it sounds silly, but I've been able to nail a lot of IDs with facial expressions.

    I understand...but now that we are in an age in which players wear new spring-training uniforms that are different from their new regular-season uniforms, it may be a revelation to new people on this board that players used to wear their worn-out old uniforms during spring training each year.

    If GaryL's IDs are correct, and Duffy Lewis is the player in the back row on the right, then this must be the 1919 Yankees. Lewis was in the army during the entire 1918 season, and he had previously played for the Red Sox. But then why is he wearing a Yankee uniform from 1918? I think it could be Hugh High...

If they had been traded during the winter, they would wear their previous team's uniform. Regarding the stadium, perhaps the Yankees were on their way back to New York from wherever they had trained that spring, and played an exhibition game in a major league ballpark. (I don't know; I'm just speculating...)
    I'm quite aware of all that...I was merely pointing out some specific details.

    1953-53 Caguas-Guayama Team Composite
    Puerto Rican League Champions (featuring Hank Aaron)
    Yup, young Hammerin' Hank's last name is misspelled "AROON" on the photo. Still a great (and rare) document of Hank's time in Puerto Rico, where he first learned to play the outfield before his rookie season with Milwaukee.

    Thanks for posting this!
    Oops, my bad. Thanks!
