Ppppplay Ballll!!!! - Found Photos for Sunday Scans

I found a package of slightly damaged photos in a bag of mostly garbage beside the road a while back.
I was dismayed to find someone's precious memories inside.

Someone who got to see a very special ball game ...

With players I don't recognize (sorry, I don't watch baseball).

Someone whose memories apparently included a photo op with at least one of the players!

It must have been a team much admired ... someone had a wonderful time!

It breaks my heart when I see photos like this thrown away.
That's why they end up in my "found photo" file ...

Now they will also end up being part of Al's "Sunday Scans"!!!

P.S. - Do you recognize any of these players? If you do, leave me a comment! These photos intrigue me!!! Also, if you have scanned something, be sure to join us over at "Sunday Scans" - it is a monthly meme now, and that gives you several more weeks to SCAN IT!!!

You've got a fascinating Sunday Scans entry here. I wonder who owned these, and what the story was behind it - it was probably a very special day at the ballpark. I'm guessing spring training, since the stands are so empty? But I certainly don't know anything about baseball, so I don't have a clue who the players are. Somehow it looks very 1970s to me.

Great memory collection. I hope the little boy is now a young man who blogs .... and sees this ... wouldn't that be grand?

I agree with Al--looks very 1970's. And that baseball guy is really cute. (grin)
