"Kings Again!", 1944

This is the victorious Brewer squad, kings of the American Association in 1944.

Wednesday, September 6, 1944:

BREWER CHAMPS REPEAT and hold a little celebration in the clubhouse after clinching the 1944 pennant by defeating the St. Paul Saints, 6 to 0, in the first game of a twin bill last night. The players, left to right, front row: Tommy Nelson, Arky Biggs, Dick Culler, Trainer "Doc" Feron, Jimmy Pruett, Charlie Sproull, Heinz Becker. Middle row, Lou Grasmik, George Binks, D. Lang, Floyd Speer, Jack Farmer, Roy Easterwood, Manager Casey Stengel, Charlie Gasaway, Bill Norman, Hal Peck, Julie Acosta, Earl Caldwell, Owen Scheetz. Back row, center: Gene Edwards (he's bashful), Ed Levy, Don Hendrickson.
I love the Wheaties boxes stacked up in the background.
