From my dusty archives: more images from the 1977 playoffs on a big playoff night for the Brewers and Cards...
Doesn't seem like the playoffs without the White Rat holding forth, does it?
The man looks like he was born under that ball cap, doesn't he? Especially in the late afternoon October sun... Afternoon sun in October has a special quality.
More 1977 Royals-Yankees playoff photographs to come...
By the way, did you notice the opposing shortstops, Brewers vs. Diamondbacks, were castoff infielders for the Royals last season?
And you know the networks are weeping tonight. No Phillies, no Yankees. At least they have Texas -- but in Texas, football is king by now. Prediction: Lowest television ratings ever; most hard-fought, most entertaining, league series games in recent memory.
