Yogi. Lou. Curt. Satchel & Catfish. The Spaceman.

A great quality color photo of Yogi Berra of the New York Yankees.

 

Incredible photo.  August 16th, 1925. Lou Gehrig of the New York Yankees slides headfirst into home ( he was called safe) in a game against the Washington Senators.

 

August 17th, 1961. St. Louis Cardinal Center Fielder Curt Flood makes a run saving catch against the San Francisco Giants  (ball hit by Hobie Landrith) in Candlestick Park.

 

1965, Kansas City Athletics. 19 year old Rookie pitcher Jim “Catfish” Hunter sits in 58 year old pitcher Satchel Paige’s lap while talking the art of pitching. 1965 marked the last Major League season of Paige’s career, and 2nd to last in professional baseball. He pitched 2 innings the following year with the Peninsula Grays,  a Class A affiliate if the Cincinnati Reds.

 

On September 5, 2010. 63 year old Bill “The Spaceman” Lee pitched a victory for the The Brockton Rox of the Can-Am League. Lee pitched five 1/3  innings in which he allowed 2 runs on 5 hits with 1 strikeout. The Rox defeated the Worcester Tornadoes, 7-3. Lee is now the oldest pitcher to appear (or to win) in a professional Baseball game. The Baseball Hall of Fame has his hat that he wore that day and will have it on display in the new Hall of Fame’s Records Room which opens in 2011
