This is just an amazing live-action photo of Jackie Robinson trying to turn two. It was taken by Tony Bernato of International News Photos on 7/21/1952. Sliding into second base is Yankee Gil McDougald. The photo was taken during the New York-Brooklyn Mayor's Trophy Game at Yankee Stadium. This was an exhibition game played in benefit of Sandlot Baseball.
Jackie Robinson scores at home in this 1950 Internal News press photo. The catcher is Wes Westrum of the New York Giants. It was taken during the fifth inning of the second game of a doubleheader on July 4, 1950.
The below photo makes me sad, just a bit.
This is a December 13, 1956 International News Press Photo featuring the Robinson's celebrating a trade to the NY Giants.
Jackie would soon decide to retire from the game instead.
