The teams: Raymond Rams

The Rams are matched with the 1924 Detroit Tigers and will play in Navin Field.

C: Ray Schalk
1B: Frank Chance
2B: Nellie Fox
3B: Joe Sewell
SS: Phil Rizzuto
LF: Earle Combs
CF: Hack Wilson
RF: Elmer Flick

P1: Gaylord Perry. P2: Red Ruffing

The bench: Johnny Bassler (C), Lu Blue (IF), Bob Fothergill (OF), Fred Haney (IF), Del Pratt (IF), Al Wingo (OF), Larry Woodall (C)

Pitchers: Hooks Dauss, Rip Collins, Ken Holloway, Syl Johnson, Dutch Leonard, Lil Stoner, Ed Wells, Earl Whitehill

Also eligible: Les Burke (IF), Bert Cole (P), Bob Jones (IF),  Frank O'Rourke (F), Herman Pillette (P), Topper Rigney (IF). Ineligible: outfielders Ty Cobb, Harry Heilmann and Heine Manush.

Thoughts: Lacking in power. Feels a step below the Orators offensively. Whitehill is the No. 3 starter, and Dauss may be the closer. I think this is the weakest of the HOF teams.
