Lefties have to be different

Not only is the player on the left side left-handed (no pun intended) but the letter "G" on his jersey isn't on the placket like it is on all of the other uniforms. Why do lefties always insist on being different?


Any idea as to what are the little items that can be seen for example on the uniform of the centre guy across the bottom of the last O? A few of the others have similar - the guy to his right (as we look at it) has one below the T. Is it just a glitch on the photo, or are they small pin badges?

Tools of Ignorance

Of course, the fellow with the catcher's mitt would be the odd man out here.

The outlook isn’t brilliant

If they intend on playing a term of nine.

The Splendid Splinter

The player on the right looks like he could be an older brother of Ted Williams.
