Original 1st Generation, Type 1, "International News" Press Photo from original negative with descriptor, dated Mar 2, 1946. The descriptor reads: PITY POOR DODGERS IN BLEAK FLORIDA. Daytona Beach, Fla.......It's all right for the fortunate people up North. They can warm be shoveling snow. But the poor Brooklyn Dodgers, who are spring training down in Daytona Beach have to light a fire to get the chill out of their bones. Billy Herman is playing fireman here to get a blaze going for Vic Lombardi, Hal Gregg and Lew Riggs. Cold weather caused postponement of practice called for yesterday."
