From the Hy Peskin web site (he was an SI photgrapher in the 1950s), there are some nice, colorful shots of Sox players in the 1950s in spring training, in Detroit and in New York.

Here's a good one of Nellie Fox:

Nice pics.

Whoever wrote some of the captions wasn't much of a baseball fan though. They called the Yankees the Mets more than once and the one picture of Ernie Banks said it was from a White Sox-Tigers game.

Is it wrong to admit that the one picture I liked most was of Henry Aaron at the plate in the '57 World Series?

Love Nellie's socks in this photo. The red and white really pop in contrast to the grey wool uni. Great photo.

Check out Chico's uniform. Minnie and Walt have button-downs, while Chico is stuck with a zip-up.

1974 called, and it wants its argument back.

Nobody claimed (or would claim) that Aaron was a superior offensive player to Ruth...just that he's the home run king. Which he is...because he uhhh hit more home runs.

What I'm saying and I think Nellie means the same thing is that because Bonds was on steroids he cheated to set the record. Of course what we think doesn't mean squat but I will bet he will not be voted into the HOF.

I knew exactly what you meant and I agree. "Either do I" just isn't a correct phrase...and even if you'd said "neither do I," it still wouldn't have made grammatical sense in context.:tongue:

Yes, I realise that I'm the grammar police.

We've been over this. I spell a lot of words in the British fashion, and have been doing so since childhood. It's equally correct. Get over it.

Give me an "F".

I think Seph was in England for some time and ''realise'' is how they spell it across the pond.

PS. I will never knock how the English speak or spell, its their language.

PSS. For some strange reason I have always spelled the color gray; grey, which is the English spelling. Got in quite an argument with someone over it a few years back.
