eBay: Winter Baseball

This vintage press photo is dated April 15, 1950 is on eBay and features Carl Furillo taking a swing at a snowball as Roy Campanella mans his position at catcher. With no game possible because of inclement weather, this will have to do. From the press clipping on the reverse:
Carl Furillo (right), Brooklyn Dodgers outfielder, wings a shovel and hits a snowball on the snow-covered diamond at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, New York, April 14, after the game between the Dodgers and the New York Yankees was called off because of the weather. Joining in with Furillo in the "game" is catcher Roy Campanella.
