The Biemiller Boys with Eddie Joost and ?
Shibe Park, The Philadelphia A's, circa 1950

Shibe Park circa 1950

I tripped over this photograph after a move to Pennsylvania where I now live. I'm the little kid in front and my brothers are behind me. Brother Jack remembers the player (maybe manager) on the left as being Eddie Joost.

Dad (Carl L. Biemiller) was an editor with Holiday Magazine at the time and that probably had something to do with this photograph being taken.

You'll notice how the fans of that era were dressed. Quite a change these days.

Shibe Park is long gone (as are the Philadelphia A's; moved to Oakland, CA) and the site is now a mega-church.

Any help with the identity of the other player would be appreciated. If you have such information please email me at:
