No. 55, John Padewski, the Notre Dame catcher connects. Padewski (who later played under the name John Ross) played for the Hounds' Southern League team from 1952 to 1954. Coaching at third in the catcher's gear is Hounds' playing-manager Frank Germann. The catcher, umpire, base runner and third baseman remain unidentified.
Above left - that's Hank Dornstauder in the outfield. Lane Field. Year? So far we have Dornstauder playing for the Hounds in 1948-49-50. Right - game at Weyburn (see elevator). Batter? Catcher? Umpire? Year?
Above left - Pitcher Dick Kerley. We have him pitching for Notre Dame in 1947-48-49. (He's with Moose Jaw in 1950, so assume it's one of those years in the late 40s.) Right - That's Frank Germann. Lane Field? Year?
Left - No. 30, outfielder Murray Huck appears to have hit a popup in this game at Wilcox with the Hounds up against Weyburn sometime in the 1952 to 1954 period. Right - Bobby Donald. Not sure how we'll pin down a date on this one. We have Donald playing for the Hounds in 1942-43-45 and then 1951 to 1960.
Year? Names of players? The team is decked out in San Diego uniforms courtesy of Bill Lane, the then owner of the San Diego Padres of the Pacific Coast League. Lane was quite a patron of Notre Dame. Lane Hall and Lane Field were named after him given his contributions to the school. What was the connection between Lane and the school? Father Athol Murray is second from the right, and that appears to be Lane at the extreme right.
Mudslide. That's Hugh Huck set for a phantom throw to nab an unidentifed Hound in this stunt which might occured on the road. Likely 1952 to 1954.
Year? Player? Game is at Wilcox. Catcher?
Above - Murray Huck at Lane Field. Huck played for the Hounds 1948-1954. The gazebo like structure behind Murray was called "Speaker's Corner" where impromptu rallies were held in support of the school teams.
