Any background on the baseball pic? Was this at the time of the comedians vs. tragedians charity game? What's the insignia stand for?DT
Yes, it's from the charity game. Here are some other photos: Thttp://www.discoveringchaplin.com/2013/07/charlie-participates-in-baseball-game.htmlThe insignia looks like an "MP" so "Motion Picture" maybe?
Maybe Mutual Pictures? That game was 1917. But didn't CC pitch? Caption says shortstop.
Yes, he was the pitcher. Evidently there was another charity game later that year--a benefit for U.S. soldiers set up by Douglas Fairbanks and Billy Sunday. Charlie and Mary Pickford were named "honorary umpires."
