George Brett. Brooklyn Dodgers. Bob Gibson. Stargell & McCovey. Boston Red Sox.
1993. George Brett says goodbye to both the Royals and Kauffman Stadium after his illustrious 21 year playing career.
Such a great photo of Pee Wee Reese and Don Zimmer of the Brooklyn Dodgers in which they show their appreciation for the “Keep The Dodgers in Brooklyn” campaign.
I came across this photo while searching for a “Keep The Dodgers in Brooklyn” button or shirt. I found it on THIS site which is reproducing the exact shirt in the photo above. The shirts are a little pricey but I think the inner Baseball geek inside me will validate spending that much somehow.
Bob Gibson, Spring Training of 1975. This photo makes me feel a little uncomfortable. I am so conditioned to seeing Gibson during his playing days as an dominating force without many weaknesses that finding this was almost shocking as it captures a fading star in the twilight of his career.
No big deal, it’s just Willie Stargell and Willie McCovey hanging out in a dugout together. I love this photo of these Hall of Fame sluggers.
Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, and Dom DiMaggio of the Boston Red Sox. I wonder if Ted Williams is looking at video footage of one of his at-bats? If so that would further validate every comparison between himself and Tony Gwynn. This is because Gwynn was known as “Captain Video” due to his pioneering of making video analysis a regular practice in modern Baseball.
Oh yeah, this photo is awesome as it has 3 of my favorite Red Sox players of all time who just happen to be 3 of my favorite PCL players also.
