This is one of my favorite pictures ever. A classic from 1968.

Bobby Douglass was not a star passer, but a solid runner and entertaining player. He was like a wild, out of control horse running all over the field.

This is from Tony Conigliaro's 1970 book, Seeing It Through -- Tony was in the dugout for the 1967 WS -- of course he couldn't play having been beaned in Aug. -- anyways here's Tony C's recollections of the late stages of a Game 5 in St.L pretty unmatched in Sox WS all-times


"In the ninth Ellie Howard singled with the bases loaded. One run scored on the hit, and another when Roger Maris' throw to the plate was high. I was leaping up and down in the dugout. I looked out at Ellie standing on first base and he looked like the biggest man in the world. He'd been a great asset to the club ever since we got him from the Yankees [on Aug. 3].

"From the first day he joined our ballclub I don't think I saw one of our pitcher ever shake off his signs. Usually, a pitcher will stare down from the mound and if he doesn't like what he sees, he shakes his head and waits til the catcher comes up with something he wants.

"But not with Ellie. They had too much respect for him. He gave them confidence, and I know that after the Series, [Cy Young winner] Jim Lonborg paid tribute to Ellie by saying that having him behind the plate took the burden of thinking off his own shoulders."

Never seen a picture of Earl that young; though the expression on his face still shows someone ready to explode and say f-u and kick some dirt on an umpire

First two black players in each league.

Jackie Robinson in the N.L. and Larry Doby in the A.L

Both great players.
