Default Rochester Redwings Photo?

Ok so I am stumped on this photo.

It appears the 3rd baseman has a Red Wings jersey on.

I searched as hard as I could and all late 40's early 50's red wing uniforms seem to have a line underneath the name.

I then looked at #3 as the catcher, and the only #3 from 49-50's was Derry who was a Outfielder.

The runner going down the 1st base line looks like he could be wearing a Cardinals uniform, so maybe a spring training game?

Definitely 2 different teams as one teams sock has 3 stripes (Cardinals) and the other has 2 bigger stripes higher up.

Anyone wanna take a stab at this? The photo is blank on the back.

Can you post close/higher res scans of the 3B and runner?

Know several people who know Red Wings history.

Need a way bigger, higher-res image to provide any help on this one -- current image blown up to three times its size starts to pixellate,
so the 3rd-baseman's jersey looks more like it says "Sun Kings" and the catcher's number looks more like a 9.
Also, not sure why you stopped at 1949 -- to us, pic looks like it could just as easily be late 1930s, and if it is Red Wings,
Rochester have used that nickname since 1928.

I would make as big a scan as I could, and then I would crop the third baseman real tight so I could move the image around easily. He's your best bet for an ID since we might get a good look at his face and his jersey. It's probably worth doing the same to the batter. For what's it's worth, I have a circa 1940 photo of Whitey Kurowski playing third base for the Red Wings. He played there from '39 to '41. I also have a variety of photos of Red Wings from 1940 to 1963, so uniform details could help us narrow the time period.

The runner looks like Stan Musial. For real.

We stand more than ready to be corrected on this point, but we're fairly confident that the game action shown
didn't take place at Red Wing Stadium -- wasn't it oriented in the opposite direction from what the photo suggests?
Rochester was the Cardinals' farm from 1928 to 1960, so your guess at a spring training game -- somewhere
far south of Rochester -- makes some sense...

Here are Red Schoendienst and Del Rice in their 1943 Red Wings home jerseys. They look similar to the one the third baseman is wearing.

Hell yes!! Sorry I haven't posted better scans I've been out all day. Soon I will do it. Was this the only year they had this jersey?
