Match Game

Building on Scooter_B's comment, Johnny Scalzi played for the Boston Braves in 1931. He was 5' 7" and 170. Died in 1962. Looks like he could be in the middle row, far left or second from the right.

Knock this chip --

Front row, far right: most likely to get into a bar fight.

One of these lads made it to the Big Leagues

If only for two games and one at bat:

My guess is that it's the player at the far right, bottom row.
