eBay Auction: La Cucaracha

Here is fun press photo found on eBay of Ron Fairly and Al Ferrara.
"Ron Fairly, the hitting hero of the Dodger victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, 9/26, is given a Mexican-Style bear hug by teammate Al Ferrara in the dressing room after the game. Fairly's homer helped the Dodgers reduce their "Magic Number" to 3 with the 2-0 win."
The Dodgers would eventually win the National League, but lose to Baltimore in the World Series.
