Johnny Allen (located in the middle row, far right) played for Brooklyn for only 3 of his 13 Major League seasons. He did well in Blue, going 18-7 with a 3.21 ERA. True story, via wikipedia:
While working as a bellhop in a hotel, he was told to take some fans to the room of Yankee scout Paul Krichell. Allen told Krichell that he was a pitcher, and the scout arranged a tryout.That's what I call good fortune.
