Default 1933 barnstorming photo: Need help with some IDs

I recently acquired this photo, which I've since learned in from Oct. 15, 1933, and includes players from "The Ty Cobb All-Stars" and the "Coast League All-Stars." The two teams played that day in Seals Stadium.

I've positively identified the following: Ty Cobb, Lefty O'Doul, Ernie Lombardi, Willie Kamm, Roy Johnson, Joe Cronin, Tony Lazzeri, Gus Suhr, Chick Hafey, Lefty Gomez and Dick Bartell.

There are several I can't be sure of and perhaps never will be including Carl Hubbell (Giants cap, Mission Reds jersey), Johnny Vergez (in Giants jersey, to his right), Babe Dahlgren (front, third from left) and Bucky Walters (front, far right).

I have no idea about the rest, so any help IDing them would be very much appreciated. The seller thought Joe DiMaggio was in there, but I don't see him. Curiously, both he and Vince (18 and 20, respectively) played in the game that day, which the Coast Leaguers won 5 to 3.

Also, I suspect this is a second generation photo because the writing seems too recent. Can anybody tell me for sure? I've posted a scan of the back. It should sure be nice if this was a period print.

Thanks again for any feedback, Chris

Photo is mid-late 1960's so a second generation for sure but still a cool image with some age to it.

Default photo ID

Front row: Cobb, Bartell, Pete Ritchie, Gomez, Chick Hafey, Gus Suhr, Crosetti, Roy Johnson and Bert Cole
Back row:O'Doul, Fred Hoffman, Jake Ward, Lombardi, Bill Brenzel, Gordon Slade, Johnny Vergez, Willie Kamm, Sammy Bohne, Cronin and Jimmy Zinn.

The caption said this was a charity game staged by the Elks. My photo is a 2nd generation UPI, like yours, with a reprinted caption. The date looks like 10/17/33

I had been under the impression that this was the opening of Seals Stadium, but the caption says nothing about that.

Wow, that's awesome! I was way off on a couple guys, but I did get Vergez. I guessed he was there because he went to high school with Bartell. Strangely enough, the two were traded for each other a year later. I wondered if the guy next to O'Doul was Hofmann, since he was the Missions' manager at the time.

I think the Opening of Seals Stadium (which did feature Cobb as a main attraction) was in 1931. We sold this photo of the event a while back. I had thought the same thing and went back to look.
