Here are the two managers shaking hands before the game:
MILWAUKEE BEATS BUFFALO IN "JUNIOR SERIES" OPENER
The opening game of the 1936 renewal of the "Junior World Series" between the Milwaukee Brewers, champions of the American Association, and the Buffalo Bisons, champs of the International League, was won by the Brewers 7-5. The game was played at night in Milwaukee. The above photo shows the managers, Allan Sothoron of the Brewers, left, and Ray Schalk of the Bisons, shaking hands and looking worried as the series opened.
Sothoron was in his third season at the Brewers' helm, and guided the team to its first American Association pennant in twenty years.
Schalk was also a familiar figure to Milwaukee baseball fans; he came up through the Brews in 1911 and was sold to the Chicago White Sox midway through the 1912 season. He was one of the honest players on the Black Sox team that threw the 1919 World Series.
