I love this photo. If there wasn’t already a story behind it, this is the kind of photo that would serve as a terrific writing prompt.
This picture was taken September 22, 1965, at the conclusion of the Milwaukee Braves’ last game in Milwaukee County Stadium. It was the Braves’ last home game before their move to Atlanta the following year. The photo depicts third baseman Eddie Mathews on the left along with Hank Aaron as they headed up the tunnel to the dressing room for the last time.

i agree. wonderful picture of two greats! side note to that game. Frank Bolling hit a grand slam off Sandy Koufax, but braves lost.
You just inspired me to look up the box score from the game. Lost by one run in 11 innings! That would have been one hell of a game.
That’s the deal Bolling made with the devil–“You get the granny off Koufax, but I have a dime on the Dodgers, kid.”
