Need Help Identifying Players

We need some help in identifying the players in the photograph below. We recognize the three in the middle as Dizzy Dean, Francis Ettinger (in middle) and Rogers Hornsby . . . but who are the two guys on each end

The photo was taken in 1937 at Ray Doan's baseball school in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Ettinger had been selected to "The Sporting News" allstar team and earned a trip to the school. He later went on to play for the Ottawa Braves in 1938 and 1939 with the Ottawa Senators.

Click on COMMENTS and let us know if you recognize the two players on the end. The gentleman on the left looks older and could possibly be a coach.  Thanks for the help.


  1. The guy on the left may be Gabby Street who managed the Browns in '38 & '39.

    1. I think it's Charley O'Leary, who was one of the instructors at the Doan School.

  2. The player on the right is Lon Warneke who went on to become an umpire. The gent on the left is believed to be Oscar Melillo, coach.

  3. Isnt 2nd from left dizzy Dean?
