                  1956 World Series. Looks like Alston making a trip to the mound.

                      The sign at the base of the scoreboard read, "Hit Sign Win Suit." Carl Erskine said he couldn't recall anybody ever winning that free suit. Maybe because the sign was guarded by number 6. Carl Furillo was a blue collar type of guy who believed that in America you should work hard and earn your money so you could go out and buy your own suit. He didn't want Ebbets Field to be some sort of welfare state where free suits were just handed out to opposing players. No. And as best as Mr Erskine can recall, they weren't.

                      Note: Nice catch by Strummer who correctly points out that the fielder in the top photo is actually Andy Pafko and not Carl Furillo.

                            Unfortunately, zman, the picture you posted with your comments regarding Furillo, was a picture of, I believe, Andy Pafko, #48, one of the few times he played right field. The batting order on the Scoreboard indicates Snider in CF, Shuba in LF and Pafko in RF. Picture is either after June 1951 or 1952.
                            Incidently, your comments, however, are RIGHT ON!!!

                              Thanks for helping to keep this thread accurate, Strummer. Funny how I mentioned nothing getting past Furillo. It looks like the same could be said of you. Looks like no free suit for me.
