Hank Aaron and Eddie Mathews going to dressing room

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.
