Odd Spot for a Ballplayer

Vintage snapshot of a baseball player in uniform, likely in Winona, Minnesota, circa 1920s

This is another snapshot from my collection, and one in which I have never been quite sure what is going on. There is a stamp on the rear from Van Vranken’s Studio in Winona, Minnesota, so I assume it was likely taken in or near that city, which is tucked into the southeastern corner of the state along the Mississippi River. The ballplayer has his right arm around whatever that black object is — ┬ásome sort of rolled flag or banner perhaps?

Where Am I?
