I sought out Meredith Cook, an assistant director of athletic media relations at the College of the Holy Cross, for more information on the catcher and whether he was at all related to Jack Barry, longtime coach at the school.
She replied that the catcher for that season was named David Richard Barry and was not sure if David was related to Jack or not. I did a bit of research and Jack Barry left no children.

I'm not sure who the umpire is, but another player has been identified.
