The Jackie Robinson photos are simply awesome.

1955 World Series.

Bonus. Looking down at Forbes field. What an awesome shot! Link.

From LIFE's best baseball pictures.

There are picture galleries of Don Larsen’s perfect game, Willie Mays, Stan Musial (never knew “The Man” nickname was created by Dodger fans), Jackie Robinson, Brooklyn Dodgers, Hank Aaron etc.

Some of the greatest years of my life was living in NY during this era. I got to see Mays, Mantle and Snider in their prime. I visited Ebbetts Field, Polo Grounds and YS for baseball and YS and PG for NY Giants football games. My team was the Giants in orange and black and Mays was my hero. My dad was in YS for Larsen's no-hitter. I saw Wilhelm (Giants) and Bauer (Yanks) before they were Orioles. In '57 the Giants and Bums left for the left coast to my dismay, the same year the St. Louis Browns came to Baltimore.

Thanks for the link!

    • Integrity?  I don't like Aaron Judge making us his ***** for 6+ years.  Let him hit it against someone else.  He's had a great, historic season, it's been plenty fine for MLB.  I like the MLB just fine, but they still can't overcome their issues when Judge is hitting 60+ homers and you have a guy in Anaheim doing stuff no one's ever seen before and they're having a hard time getting people out to the park to see it.  MLB is declining in popularity whether or not Judge hits 1, 2 or 13 homers this weekend.
    • You pitch to Judge if it makes sense in the game to pitch to Judge and you walk him if it makes sense to walk him. The Orioles are "essentially" out of contention, but you still play to win the games. If Judge comes up with a runner on second and 1 out late in a close game, I'm walking him to set up the double-play and go after a lesser hitter. But I'm not walking him to walk him. If he hits 62, 63 or whatever against us then congratulations to him....hopefully we win anyway. 
    • Thank goodness that PED using Ruth lost the record!   Baseball players cheat, they just do. Folks need to grow up about it. Lots of your favorite players growing up were probably cheating. Bonds was just better, better at it and better at baseball.
    • Yes.  I enjoyed the recaps and the video clips.   Thank you!
    • That's fine, I guess.  I dunno, I don't feel the need to re-hash the steroid arguments and who the "real" record holders are, or should be. Find it odd that he'd want that to come at our expense though.  You and I can disagree on Judge hitting a record breaking homer against us, I'm good with that as I recognize my stance as being petty, I also just don't care about being petty when it comes to the Yankees.  Petty is also their fans crying a f'ing river last week at the prospect of Michael Kay not calling the record breaking homer because they had a Friday night game on Apple TV and We DeSeRvE tO hAvE a GoOd AnNoUnCeR CalL tHiS!   That said, at least you qualified your statement with you're okay with him doing it against us as long as it's in a loss.  Which, being realistic, is what I'd hope for, too.
    • I think any late game situation where he comes up as the tying or winning run you walk him.
