Gibson & Brock. The Spaceman. The San Francisco Seals. 1919 Black Sox.
Game 4 of the 1968 World Series. Bob Gibson is congratulated by Lou Brock after hitting a home run against the Detroit Tigers. There’s nothing Bob Gibson couldn’t do.
To see pretty cool footage of Marvin Gaye singing the National Anthem prior Game 4, click HERE. It’s not very related to Baseball but I am just a huge Marvin Gaye fan and I figured some of you may be too!
June 21st, 2011 at the Hall of Fame Classic in Cooperstown. Bill Lee at bat looking cool as usual. To read a review of the game, click HERE. Take note that Lee entered the game in the 4th inning as a Catcher wearing only an 1880’s glove. If you know what that looks like then you know how awesome Bill Lee is.
1939. The San Francisco Seals training in a sliding pit. Without a doubt this is one of the coolest photos I have come across in a long time.
Speaking of the Seals, how great is this color photo of Seals Stadium?? I am assuming this was from opening day of 1958 although I could be wrong.
The 8 members of the 1919 Chicago White Sox who were banned for life for “Selling Out Baseball” according to this clipping. I have always felt a level of compassion for these guys due to Charles Comiskey being such a penny pincher. I am not necessarily saying that I too would have thrown the World Series if I were in their shoes. Then again, I can’t say that I wouldn’t have either.
