Griffith Glory

Just a quick post to show off these glorious color fan photos from the 1956 All-Star Game in Griffith Stadium, Washington, DC. It’s all here – the classic dark green of the stands, the beautiful National Bohemian beer ad so prominent in the old park, the striking colors of the uniforms, especially the backs of the National Leaguers (a lot of Reds present with their sleeveless unis, and especially Ted Kluszewski, with no undershirt at all – also a lot of Yankees lined up along the other side), all the pomp and circumstance, and lastly what would have to be Duke Snider batting in the 7th or 8th inning, with the White Sox’ Sherm Lollar catching, and ol’ Casey looking on from the dugout. So pop open a cold “Natty Boh” and enjoy. Box score link at bottom.
