      This photo is currently available at Hunt Auctions, but misidentified as Pop Schriver. (BMarlowe provided the correct ID on another forum.)

          Photo from the January 6th, 1901, edition of El Score, a Havana publication, during the visit of major league players from the Dodgers and Giants (and a few extras) to Cuba

          The photo caption does not include identifications, so this is my attempt at IDs based on who is known to have gone on the trip:
          Top Row (L-R): possibly Jesse Tannehill, Willie Keeler, possibly Bill Dahlen, William (Pop) Schriver, possibly Jimmy (Doc) Casey, Hugh Jennings, Jimmy Callahan.
          Second Row (L-R): Jimmy Sheckard, John (Shad) Barry.
          Third Row (L-R): Possibly Bill Donovan (Brooklyn uniform), Jack Doyle (dark sweater), Win Mercer (New York uniform), Tom Daly (Brooklyn uniform, far right).
          Fourth Row (L-R): Tommy Simpson (Manager of the tour, wearing a suit), possibly Frank Bowerman.
          Fifth Row (L-R): George Davis, Kid Gleason.
          Bottom Row (L-R): Mike Grady, Charlie Hickman.
          Others on the tour were Harry Howell, Elmer Foster, Cy Seymour, and Tom O'Brien. I am certain that O'Brien is not in the photo, because he became seriously ill on the cruise south to Cuba and did not play at all; he died before the following season began.

          For reference, I have attached below a composite illustration of the New York Giants who were on the tour:
