    • Mickey Mantle Day - September 18, 1965
      A great picture from the 1st MM Day. The other was on June 8, 1969 when they retired his No.7
      In the background is Mickey's wife Merlyn, one of his sons and Bobby Kennedy.

        • (Lefty) Tyler Day, Boston National League Grounds. Sept. 30th 1913
          I don't have a lot of details about this panoramic, but what a great picture it is! Obviously, this picture was taken outside the ballpark on the special day held for "Lefty" George Albert Tyler, who was one of the main three pitchers the following year on the World Championship 1914 (Miracle) Boston Braves team. Cheers! ~B

              It appears that Nellie stuck second base in his cheek, too.

              Great photo!

              Seeing Nellie made me think of "Jungle" Jim Rivera in "Where Have You Gone, Vince DiMaggio?" Jim was just another working stiff at the time of his interview, and he's shown staring forlornly out of his apartment window in the photo accompanying it. Jim spoke at length about how much he missed his great friend Nellie, who had died before he reached 50. Jim didn't seem like a guy who just sat around feeling sorry for himself, just one whose glory days were long past and didn't even have his best friend from that time around to reminisce with. Very poignant portrayal.

              • 'It's All Right, Lou' - Lou Gehrig Returns - June 21, 1939
                A pristine shot of Lou on the bench with McCarthy, plus the actual press release from the back of that picture.

                • Gehrig watches Crosetti cross the plate - Fenway Park, Boston - 1936
                  Here's a great/large/pristine picture of Frank Crosetti scoring against the Red Sox in 1936. None other than Lou Gehrig looking on with two bats in his left hand. That's the infamous Moe Berg catching for the Red Sox. I don't know the umpire though...

                  • Farewell Yankee Stadium!

                    Billy & Mickey - 1952 World Series - Yankee Stadium
                    What can I say about this classic picture...there will never be another Billy Martin, Mickey Mantle or Yankee Stadium. Well, there will be another Yankee Stadium...but it won't be the same.

                    • St. Louis Cardinals Team - Spring Training - 1930's
                      I don't have any specifics for this great photo. In fact, when I found it, it was attributed as simply being a baseball team from the 1920's. Obviously it's the Cardinals (unis)...and obviously that is Dizzy Dean standing two places to the left of the man with the suit & tophat (on the bridge). I would take a guess that this is a spring training photo originating from Hot Springs, Arkansas. It was in pretty bad shape when I found it...so I brought it back to life as much as possible. Cheers! ~B

                      Wow, BSmile. Great photo of the Cardinals. I have narrowed it down to either the 1930 or the 1932 team. Dizzy was on both teams. If you notice the guy in the top left, with his arms crossed and his cap on the side of his head? Only one guy ever wore his cap in such a silly fashion, and that was Sunny Jim Bottomley. Sure enough, Jim was on the team 1930-32. But Dean was not on the 1931 team. Right below Bottomley sits Frankie Frisch. Standing between Bottomley and the gentleman in the 10-gallon hat is manager, Gabby Street. Below Frisch looks a lot like Pepper Martin.

                      • Old-Timer's Day - Shea Stadium - June 23, 1963
                        I really wish that all these Old-Timer's were filmed. Hank Greenberg in a full Tigers uni...how classic!

                        Old-Timers Day: June 23, 1963, Polo Grounds. L-R: unidentified, Joe McCarthy, Hank Greenberg, Bill Dickey, Frankie Frisch, Zack Wheat, Max Carey, Sam Rice, Carl Hubbell, Casey Stengel. The NL beat the AL in 2 innings, 8-0. (New York Times, June 23, 1963, pp. 158.)

                        I can't believe how "young" Edd Roush looks. And I wonder why he has a Giants uniform on (especially a SF Giants uniform) instead of a Reds uniform.

                        Great job on the identifications, too (Bill...was that you?). That Cardinal does look like Hornsby, but I agree...it's definitely Frisch. Hornsby died in January '63 (I think I mentioned before that I met Hornsby a couple times in the early '60's...he was friends with my grandfather and they used to go the the Arlington Park Race Track together).

                        • Ty Cobb - April 1931 - San Francisco, CA
                          The Georgia Peach Goes To Work On The Apple
                          Here's a wonderful, large-scale picture of Ty at an exhibition in 1931. I get the feeling that he was STILL the best hitter in the entire park that day...even in a suit and dress shoes. Included is the original backing tag to the photo.

                          • Joe DiMaggio - Late 1940's

                            Here's a great, super-large photo of Joe in full uniform, including his jacket. I'm not really sure on the exact year...but it appears to be post WW2 at least...it could even be 1950-51. BTW, awesome work on the Tigers/Cobb pic ID's!

                                This is a rare and pristine image from the original negative. I love pic's like this. Still has all the original markings etc...so cool to see that. I wish it were the original size, but oh well. Enjoy! ~B
