Front Row

Unidentified rugby team.

Colby College (ME) Baseball Team, 1900.
Fitzroy Harbour (Ontario, Canada) Ice Hockey Team, c. 1910.

So many sports team photos from around the turn of the 20th Century feature a leisurely front row. Who was selected for these lounging positions? The best players (because they made their respective games look easy)? The least popular? The benchwarmers?
