1915 Tournament Champions

It is a fun, albeit somewhat mysterious detail that hides in plain sight on the walls of Casey's Corner in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. The Main Street eatery is decorated with old fashioned baseball memorabilia, paying tribute to Casey at the Bat, the famous poem and subsequent Disney cartoon that inspired the restaurant's name and design. Among a number of antique photographs near the large Republic Field scoreboard is this picture of the 1915 Tournament Champions. Though cleverly disguised, it is clearly of a more contemporary origin. It has been speculated that the individuals pictured may be the Imagineers responsible for Casey's Corner. Can anyone out there identify these folks?

Second from the left in the front row is Eddie Sotto, Main Street Show Producer for Disneyland Paris, where the original Casey's Corner is located.

My good friend THE Jeff Kurtti happens to be incorrect. Eddie is not in the picture at all. I imagine these are mostly WDW folks who worked on the rehab.

How do i know this? I AM Eddie Sotto
