eBay: Alston Looks On with Some Protection

Here is a 1957 Spring Training press photo from International News featuring skipper, Walter Alston watching his batters during Spring Training.  He's behind what looks like a makeshift screen.  The descriptor on the reverse states:
"SAFETY FOIST-----Vero Beach, FLA........ Protected by a screen behind the pitcher's mound, manager Walter Alston keeps a critical eye on things as Fred Krupp pitches during practice at the Dodgers spring camp in Vero Beach.  Alston took this precaution after he was almost beaned by a line drive".
