Need help identifying this uniform/team; player is Woody Upchurch; c. 1930; possibly Muskogee Chiefs but I have been unable to find a photo for comparison. Thanks.

Generally an M like that was used in Minnesota back in the day although I have never seen one exactly like that. The M on the hat looks different than the one on the uniform. The hat M looks like the one the Gophers used post 40's, but the one on the uniform looks like it's straight up and down. The Millers did not use this version either. Possibly Milwaukee? Good luck.

Thanks; agree that the M is different on cap and uniform. A car accident ended his pitching career in late 30s. 1933 Memphis Chickasaws below look like a good candidate but need a Muskogee pic for comparison.
