Summary provided by the Society for American Baseball Research, 2010-2011.
The Boston Bees are wearing their 1937 home style socks. The lack of a visible visiting team makes this either a 1937 regular season game or a 1938 City Series pre-season exhibition game against the Red Sox. The congratulator may be Johnny Riddle and the runner touching home plate is either Vince DiMaggio or Gene Moore (Society for American Baseball Research, 2010-2011).
