    And here's the article I found regarding the formation of the "Loudoun County League"

    From ...

    The Washington Post ~ Washington, D.C. ~ July 11, 1907

    ( Notice that Beavers and Darrell are not listed for this particular game but they are clearly identified in the 1907 team photo. Its discrepancies like this that drive me bonkers, but one's I cannot explain either. As for Lloyd Orrison, he was pretty much playing full-time for the Post Office team in 1907).

    Because of the different uniforms, what I'm trying to figure out now is ...

    1. Are the uniforms as well as the two pictures from different years or the same year?

    2. Or are the pictures and uniforms possibly from the same year but they got new uniforms after the season started?

    Only time will tell if this final observation of mine is a grand slam homerun or a strikeout. But whichever of the two it turns out to be, it's the best I can come up with and hope member 66 finds it helpful. The 1907 picture speaks for itself because it came from a dated newspaper . If the 1904 date I came up with for 66's photo turns out to be incorrect, I'm betting it was taken before 1907 but no earlier than 1903. The players names I came up with for 66's photo are the result of hours of examination, and even though some of them might not be correct, I'm betting the majority of them are.

    P.S.

    The best way to compare the pictures is to click back-and-forth on the boxes "Last/Next-Prev/First" and focus on one face at a time. Study every feature of their faces, especially their eyes and general expressions.

    P.S. ~ P.S.

    Possible clue to one of the players ...

    Beavers was a pitcher most of the time but occasionally played first base. Notice in the 1907 newspaper photo that he's wearing a jacket and holding a baseball in his right hand. Now look at the player I named Beavers in 66's photo. Is that a baseball he's holding in his right hand? Its things like this, plus close examination of their faces, that I spent hours studying.
