Some images of playoff games in Kansas City -- file under ancient,heartbreaking but wonderful history
With major league baseball playoffs in full swing, I thought I'd go through my archives (boxes) looking for photographs I took of the classic heartbreaking Kansas City Royals -- New York Yankees playoff battles of the late 1970s. This image of Fred Patek laying down a bunt is from 1977, I think. Who can you identify on the Yankee bench in the background? Wonder if you can recognize anyone in the stands.
This was Game Five. Patek batted lead-off but went oh-for-five.
I'll post some others later this week.
