Top row 4th from left may be Ovid Nicholson who played in 6 games for the Pirates that year. Top row last on right looks a lot like Butts Wagner who wasn't on the team but probably got a jacket due to family connections.

Good eye! I can see in newspaper accounts that Al "Butts" Wagner was in the Hot Springs camp in 1912.
