Washington Senator: 1922

Washington Senator: 1922

LOC only says 'Kiefer' as description for this baseball portrait. Gives year as 1922. Looks like a tough guy. Could be a little blood there on his cheek.

Did a little research on Kiefer. Found a reference to a Kiefer that lost two games of the 1922 World Series, but as a pitcher for the New York Giants, against the Washington Senators. Also found a site with a 1922 Senators roster. No Kiefer. Might be mis-described on photo. Perhaps someone can verify or clarify his identity.
