More fun with the Google/Life Photo Archive

Great picture of Johnny Bench

A shot of Sandy Koufax I've never seen. That is one thing about his archive that is cool. Many of the photos have never been published so you will see photographs of subjects that interest you that you have never seen before.

Holy cow, check this view of the Polo Grounds in New York City. It's one of my favorite old ballparks.

My other favorite old ballpark, Ebbets Field.

Another great shot of Ebbets Field.

Willie Mays gets some high heat.

Satchel Paige pitching in his first major league game.

Holy cow, Satchel Paige, Jim Brown and Bill Cosby (guest host) on the Tonight Show.

One more: A shot of the atomic bombs test at the Bikini Atoll.

New Mets ballpark borrows a lot from Ebbets Field. See the outside facade, and the overall shape of the field resembles it.

There is a guy named Martin Hill who lives in Midland, NC not far from you who owns some of the cameras used to film the atomic bomb tests. If your interested ride out there, he'd show ya. If your interested in photography you have to go, you could spend a month or two at his warehouse.
