Celebration of Deadball Era



A fellow member of the Society for American Baseball Research called our attention to a YouTube post featuring various images from the Deadball Era (pre-1920). In a couple of shots, you see what unusual access news photographers received during games (1:39 and 3:04 on the timer).
I'm no expert in old photos, but I spotted Babe Ruth as a pitcher (1:18), Ty Cobb (2:08) and Honus Wagner (3:11). Who else do you see?
