Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Anyone recognize any of the players here in the following photos? The possible dates on these going by uniform styles are 1962-64....I know the "old man" would be Bill Rigney, but I am stumped on any of the players...also strange to me are the hat styles on the Colts player...the Braves player on the bench is also wearing a hat with "LB" on it??? Check out the boxes of baseballs on the ground...not only were they using Reach balls, but there is also a box of DeBeer baseball too.<br /><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/laa10.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/laa9.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/laa6.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/laa4.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/laa1.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Greg</b><p>Great photos Dan, I love those ball boxes!<br />I don't think that's Bill Rigney, perhaps Jimmie Reese who helped coach the Angels on and off (Babe Ruth's former roommate!)<br /><br />Greg

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Well looking at this photo makes the mystery grow deeper as this certainly isn't Dean Chance who wore #31 for the Angels from 1961-66.<br /><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/laa3.jpg">

Posted By: <b>bobw</b><p>The Pirate player is Bob Bailey. The Angel player with the catchers mitt looks a little like Ed Kirkpatrick. The person next to Bailey seems to be looking at a program. Maybe you could scan a larger image and see what it says

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>I zoomed in on that program and it's not clear enough. Any ideas on why the old man is wearing #31?
