Harmon Killebrew Golfing At The Met
50 Years Ago Today - Metropolitan Stadium - August 5, 1964

~ “AP Wire: The Swinger - Minnesota Twins outfielder, Harmon Killebrew, who leads the American League in home runs with 38, smacked a golf ball in a pregame contest before the Boston Red Sox game at Metropolitan Stadium Wednesday night. Watching was Bruce Doering, 16, of Helena, Mont., Killebrew’s partner in the exhibition. A few of the Twins players paired with some of the contestants in the Junior Chamber of Commerce International Golf Tournament now being held in St. Paul. Object of the game was to drive the golf ball through hoops in center field.”

"Decades Before Jackie"(Waller Irvin & Emmett Parker, New York Giants trainers in 1923)

Here’s one of the photos that I provided for today’s lead story on Uni Watch (with writer/Uni Watch creator Paul Lukas): link: Uni Watch (4/15/2014) - “Decades Before Jackie”. The story is about the black trainers of early MLB, many of whom wore at least part of the team uniform years before Jackie Robinson did on this day in 1947 (albeit in a different capacity of course). So click over to Uni Watch and check out the story & photos that give us a glimpse into an otherwise largely forgotten chapter of baseball history.
