      Mel Ott Photo File.

      I picked up this photo by chance years ago. This is their way of staying in shape during the winter months. L to R: Carl Lind, Eddie morgan, Jouilliber, Monk Zeldon, Mel Ott, Lenny Mock and Zeke Bonura. All but Mock and Zelden were major leaguers. Mock played in the minors, Zeldon was a attorney in New Orleans. Photo was either 1934-1935.

        Correction: third player from the left should be, John Oulliber.

              1946 Chesterfield Ad - Bill Dickey & Mel Ott
              This ad features managers Bill Dickey (Yankees) and Mel Ott (Giants). Besides having Mel Ott, what’s interesting about it is that Dickey only managed the Yankees for 105 games in 1946. That ended up being the full extent of his managing experience, as he never skippered another MLB club again. So an ad featuring Dickey as manager is understandably pretty rare. Nice to see the guys in real color too. (Also featured on my blog: The Real BSmile: 1946 Chesterfield Ad)

                    I saw the ones you did on your blog. That's pretty wild.

                      Ott getting back to third sometime in 1939. The Reds third baseman is Billy Werber.

I was able to identify the year from Haas' uniform. 1942 was the only year the Reds had that patch on the left sleeve. It would be nice if some researcher would catalog all the uniform patches.
                          It looks more like the Baseball Centennial patch on the Reds uni. Maybe it's actually 1939 and Billy Werber covering 3rd?

                              Looks like you're right. I just assumed it was first because of where Ott is situated.
