    Giants outfielder, stealthy excellent glove mostly in the inside ball era and a bit more valuable offensively, and who's your new photo?

      I'm guessing they're boxers.
      "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

          Burns the Giants LF was probably the premier leadoff hitter in the NL in the 1910s, often leading the league in R or OBP. Burns the 1B had a few big years. I vote for George Burns the LF.

            George Joseph Burns (the left fielder) was born in 1889. George Henry Burns (the first baseman) was born in 1893. George Burns (the comedian) was born in 1896. In 1881, Charles Montgomery Burns (the famous Springfield billionaire) was born in 1886. It would seem that the decade of 1886-1896 was the Age of Burns.

            I would rank them as follows:

            1. Monty Burns
            2. George Burns
            3. George J. Burns (clearly the best ballplayer of the group)
            4. George H. Burns

              Excellent. (I really wish had the skillset to add a GIF)
