Play Ball!

Boy's Baseball Team, Undated, from the John Holly Williams Collection
Here is the caption verbatim from the library's files: 

"Kees Mother Team. Identified as: left to right - front: unknown, Jerry Case, unknown, Wade Thornhill, unknown, Julian Cameron, unknown, unknown. Back: Dicky Morgan, unknown, Coach, Jimmy Foster, Warren Estes, Sherman Swalm, Coach, unknown, unknown, ? Feduccia. (Brookhaven)

"On back of picture: 'Witbeck Photo Service, Portrait & Commercial Photography, Phones 739 - 1195 W, Brookhaven, Mississippi'" (C.W. Witbeck operated his studio in Brookhaven between 1948 and 1955.)  

This photos was taken at the Little League Ball Park. Jerry Case recalls it being in 1954. 
To my earlier question, What's a Mother team? a friend on Facebook politely pointed out that that's a typo and should read Motors. Doh!
