Just another celebration in the Dodgers clubhouse.
Check out this fantastic, rarely seen, photograph of several of Brooklyn's boys drinking, partying and carrying-on in the locker room after clinching the 1955 National League pennant. It is currently available for sale at RMY Auction. Check that out here. It was originally printed in the Milwaukee Journal.
You can see second baseman Don Zimmer give Dodger batboy Charlie Di Giovanna a beer shower as Roger Craig, Dixie Howell, Don Bessent, Billy Loes, Frank Kellert and Russ Meyer cheer on. Best yet, Zimmer is wearing Don Newcombe's oversized straw hat.

Dear Dodgers, don't become your own curse.
