Sensational all the way around
those bleachers look too creaky to be holding all those people -- also, that Might have been at BU's Nickerson Field, where Boston played a year or 2 IIRC

George Blanda -- he was the NFL's Gordie Howe -- QB and Placekicker, retired as QB, stayed on as PK, was even career all-time leader in points scored at 1 point
--
then 1 day, wasn't it in playoffs -- Daryl Lamonica got hurt, & after several years not playing QB -- out of mothballs & onto the field trots 40-something PK George Blanda! & the Raidiz won the game IIRC & he played effectively in several more games at QB -- (this is all from memory but quite sure) --

he looks like crazy legs Looney in that photo -- but that is the Classic Rams Helmet! Tony Guillory flashes to mind -- & those bleachers all empt like that -- these are crystal clear photos thanks!
& Paul -- he proved out as one of our better picks, then found a home in Phx -- & ...Mitch Kupchak in backgrnd?

Good 1 of Rod Carew too, one of the great contact hitters of all time

Gino Cappelletti

After a good career playing QB and kicker at the University of Minnesota, he played in the ORFU (Ontario Rugby Football Union) and the CFL in the late 50s. Cappelletti went on to join the American Football League's Boston Patriots charter franchise, where as a receiver he teamed up with quarterback Babe Parilli in to form a tandem nicknamed "Grand Opera." He won AFL MVP honors in 1964, led the league in scoring five times and was a five-time AFL All-Star. He holds the professional football record for points over a six-year period (9.5), points over an 11-year period (7.5) and percentage of his team's total points over an eight-year period (34%). Cappelletti, one of 20 AFL players active during the entirety of the league's ten-year existence, was also among just three players who played in every one of his team's AFL games.

He played with the Patriots from 1960 through the 1970 NFL merger season and retired as the AFL's all-time leading scorer with 1,130 points (42 TDs, 176 FGs and 342 PATs) and among the AFL's top ten all-time receivers in yards and in receptions. Cappelletti had two of the top five scoring seasons in pro football history, with 155 points in 1964 and 147 points in 1961 (14-game seasons). His Patriots team scoring record lasted until it was broken by Adam Vinatieri on December 5, 2005. To date he is the Patriots' third all-time leading receiver with 292 catches for 4,589 yards, and he attempted more field goals (334) than has any player in team history.

Cappelletti worked alongside Gil Santos as a color commentator for the Patriots' radio broadcasts on the New England Patriots Radio Network (in the 1988-90 period he worked alongside Dale Arnold). The Santos-Cappelletti duo lasted 28 seasons, the longest radio tandem in modern NFL history. They called 585 regular-season and postseason games together, including a league-record six Super Bowls.

Gino is best known among current Patriots fans as the long-time color commentator for the Patriots, retiring in 2012 after a 28-year run in the broadcast booth. He also served as color commentator for the Boston College Eagles during the famous "Hail Flutie" game. Cappelletti can be heard supporting Dan Davis' now-famous call by yelling "He got it!, He got it!, I don't believe it!"

He is the father-in-law of ex-Boston College and Chicago Bears standout Tom Waddle.

Gil and Gino

I used to mute the tv and listen to them during Pats games.

It was awesome. Two really good guys.

Cool shot -- forgot about Marv Hubbard -- Hewritt Dixon is the runner I recall from those Raidiz teams -- also Dave Casper, their TE -- also their big defensive ends, Ben Davidson, and the The Big Cat, Ernie Ladd, who terrorized pro wrestlers as well as QBs
Thanks again, this thread is good exercise for my brain

Koos -- a workhorse right up til the end, when at 41 he pitched 224 innings in 1984 for the Phillies -- effective for ChiSox later in his career too -- but of course he, Seaver, Nolan Ryan, 69 miracle mets etc

knew three of em, was unsure about Willie Davis tho -- very cool shot
this is when it was a game -- read emr's post in the bball thread -- it's So ruled & fueled today by $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Thanks for the press. I still remember when Reggie J. was with the Angels and his career was on the downswing. Koosman dusted him off - Reggie got up; wiped his hands - looked over at Jerry with fire - and then hit the ball about 420 ft into the right center bleachers.

Look at Mantles calves; and I don't think the guy spent one moment exercising. In a recent bio of the Mick someone was quoted as saying when he took his shirt off it looked like a bag of snakes in a bag fighting,
