Default WW II US Military Baseball Game MLB Help

Looking for some help please with IDing players and location/time frame. I know there was a series of US military ballgames played during WWII including a championship game with MLB players. I believe this is from a random game sometime 1945 in the Pacific. Thoughts?

(Photo 1) Pee Wee Reese & I think Billy Herman..?

Thank you!

Don't have an answer but one option may be one of the games that the Washington Senators played at Norfolk, VA vs. players from the Naval Training Station there during WWII.

Thank you!
These photos were taken at the Service World Series in the fall of 1944 in the Hawaiian Islands. These were both taken at Furlong Field at the Pearl Harbor Naval Station. The top one is of Reese and Herman. The bottom one looks like Gene Woodling to me.

If you are interested in parting with these, I preserve baseball militaria and have a photo archive that I share with authors, museums and others who share the history of service baseball. See chevronsanddiamonds.org

My friend and colleague, Gary Bedingfield published a book a few weeks ago covering service baseball in the islands during the war: Baseball in Hawaii During World War II
