Mystery Photo: Baseball Players and Fans, ca. 1947

Here is one of our favorite Summer photographs. It shows seven players from the Hastings "Lions" and a few extra fans on the side. Friends of the society have identified a few of the boys -- John Hirniak is on the far left, a Schnibbe boy is fifth from the left, and Frank Minkewicz is seventh. But we'd love to know the names of every single one of them. You can click on the photograph to see a larger view in Flickr. Do you recognize anyone? Let us know!

If you don’t know, but are curious about the answers, come back to the blog and check this post. We’ll attach comments with any information we receive

  1. Thanks to Bob Russell, John Kennedy, and Ken Aluisio we have some more identifications for this photograph! We appear to have, left to right: John Hirniak, possibly Mike Hirniak or Bill Neczesny, Kevin Reilly, Donny Diaz, possibly a Schnibbe or Gabie boy, unidentified, Frank Minkewicz, Patrick O'Hare or Chuck Woodard, Steve Hall, and possibly Donnie Russell at the far end. And the photograph was not taken in 1947, but in 1957. If you can help us clarify any of this, let us know!
