    Re: Great Yankee photos



    1951



    Undated, but my (JY) guess is circa 1970, since Casey passed on in 1975, and Mickey looks like he's already retired (last season: 1968).

    Undated -- based on the length of the sleeves (and the size of Ruth's girth), it's likely 1932 or before.

    Bob Meusel's definitely the guy on the right, and the guy on the left is either Earle Combs or Wally Pipp -- I'm not 100% sure because the caption's wrong.

    [EDIT: On second thought, it's probably Combs.]



    I'm guessing this is the 1941 World Series celebration, just based on the names in the caption (L to R) -- Art Fletcher, Marvin Breuer, Earle Combs, Johnny Murphy, Phil Rizzuto, Red Rolfe, Tommy Henrich, and Johnny Sturm.

    It's got to be 1974, since Mantle is holding a replica of his Hall of Fame induction plaque.

    "Old Timers": Speaker, Ruth, & Cobb -- "Amateur Day" in Cleveland, July 28, 1941



    Frank Chance in Chicago -- it says 1943 on the picture, but he died in 1924... perhaps they mean 1913?



    Chance as Yankees manager



    Chance with Clark Griffith



    This one's dated 1922, announcing that he'd signed on to manage Boston, but likely again in error, seeing as he only managed the Yankees 1913-14.



    Chance shaking hands with Joe Humphries (who from a quick Google I THINK was a popular announcer back then).

    Re: Great Yankee photos

    I am not sure in DiMaggio was really close to a lot of his teammates. Maybe a couple of youngsters with attitudes like Joe Page and Billy Martin. Someone once said DiMaggio's teammates respected him, Mantle's teammates loved him.
    Durcoher did become a decent hitter after leaving the Yankees and learning to hit the other way. Something he emphasized on his teams and why he had no use for Ernie Banks in the late 1960s. A pretty low person, suspended by two different commissioners, used to run crooked card games with the actor George Raft, once got a security guard to hold an abusive fans arms behinf his back while Durocher worked him over with brass knuckles. But very baseball-smart, always a great story teller.
    These phots are great.Love them!! Thanks to those responsible.

    Shigeo Nagashima hit 25 HR in 1962 and 444 in his career. Nagashima was probably the most popular player in the history of Japanese baseball..winning 5 MVPs, 10 Japan Series and 13 Pennants for the Yomuri Giants. Teammate Sadaharu Oh was almost certainly the better player but in race-conscious country like Japan the half-Korean Oh was not really taken to heart as the Japanese Nagashima. Nagashima was a right handed third baseman, Oh a left handed outfielder famous for raisng his right foot when hitting like a flamingo. Many people thought Oh's hitting style to be reminscent of HOF outfielder Mel Ott.

    Re: Great Yankee photos

    I thought they gave out watches back then. Or at least they did in 1928 -- maybe they mixed it up (or did both)?

    BTW, from what year is that team photo? Based on who's in it, I can guestimate somewhere between 1926 and 1929, but do you know specifically?

    Re: Great Yankee photos

    I'll ask around as to when the WS rings & watches began their distributions.

    I'm not sure which team photo. I'll ask around, then get back to you.

    Re: Great Yankee photos

    Those are some incredible photos. Whats there not to like about Basball, especially the Yankees? I would of loved to grow up living around Yankee stadium during this era.

    I am starting to collect Yankee games on DVD. I have very few on VHS that I am converting.
    I tend to stay up all hrs. of the night to watch them. There is something about that stadium when the Yanks do something awesome and it just erupes in there.
    Does anyone else have a collection.

    Yankee left fielder Gene Woodling regaining third base after Joe DiMaggio had gone out on a short fly ball during the second game of the 1950 world series played at Philadelphia on Oct. 5. The New York Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 2 to 1 in ten innings.



    Micky Mantle of the New York Yankees watching the ball sail over the head of third baseman Bobby Morgan of the Brooklyn Dodgers. The ball was relayed by the shortstop after Mantle tripled to center field in the fourth game of the 1952 world series. The Yankees won the game 2-0, and took the series, four games to three.
