Notes:
Occasionally Cy Young is seen in photos taken in his retirement years wearing a uniform that says "Old Timers" on its shirt front. This was a souvenir from a special game played in Cleveland in 1921 to celebrate the city's 75th anniversary. It brought back the stars of the past to play a team of sandlot stars and, of course, Cy Young was named to start the game. ... From Baseball Library

Jim Kaplan in Lefty Grove: American Original dates this photo as 1939, Boston Public Library as 1946. Bill Burdick of the Baseball Hall of Fame agrees that Kaplan is correct.
