Truro Bearcats

More IDs on the way. 

Colin Howell, noted author and university professor, has very kindly offered to help us out with Maritime baseball. His note on the 1957 Truro Bearcats, " ... I don't have all the names, but notably the roster included Ralph Lumenti,a 1957 Washington Senators bonus baby, top row far right; and Chook Maxwell (front row far left) who was at one point one of only two black players in professional hockey, the other being Willie O'Ree who had a spring training tryout that same year with the Milwaukee Braves. Hughie Mendez is the player in the second row, far right. Moe Drabowsky, another bonus baby, is missing from the picture, having left Truro in July and finishing the season at the major league level for the Chicago Cubs."
