          • Boston Americans and Pittsburgh Pilgrims;----- Pirates BB-Reference--------------- Red Sox BB-Reference

            Photo taken October 13, 1903 before game 8 of the World Series.
            1903 Pittsburgh Pilgrims, 91-49, .650, 6.5 games ahead.
            1903 Boston Americans, 91-47, .659, 14.5 games ahead.
            Boston won the WS, 5 games to 3.
            Top row, L-R: (all Pirates in this row): Claude Ritchey (2B), Harry Smith (C), Eddie Phelps (C), Ginger Beaumont (CF), Charles 'Deacon' Phillippe (P)), Sam Lever (P), Fred 'Bucky' Veil (P), Gus Thompson (P), Tommy Leach (3B), Jimmy Sebring (RF), Bill (Junkyard) Kennedy (P), Fred Carisch (didn't play), Honus Wagner (SS).

            Middle row, L-R, (all Boston players after Clarke): Fred Clarke, (LF/Mgr.), Jimmy Collins, (3B/Mgr.), Charles 'Chick' Stahl (CF), Bill Dinneen (P), John 'Buck' Freeman (RF), Denton 'Cy' Young (P), George 'Candy' LaChance (1B), Patrick 'Patsy' Dougherty (LF), George Winter (didn't play), Charles Farrell (PH), Jack O'Brien (PH), Tom Hughes (P).

            Seated on ground, in front, L-R: Fred Parent (SS), Lou Criger (C), Albert 'Hobe' Ferris (2B).

            Absent from the pitcure was the Pirates' fine first baseman, Kitty Bransfield.

            Deacon Phillippe was the ace of the Pirates staftt, and, of course, Cy Young the ace of the Boston staff. Incredibly, Boston used only 3 pitchers in the entire 8 game series: Young, Dinneen, and Hughes.

            The little guy with the hat next to Bill Kennedy in the back row is Mike McGreevy, leader of the Boston Rooters
