Dizzy

.
Dizzy Dean, Shadow

Downtown black and white continues with more from around the baseball stadium. There are smaller statues, less than half life-size, a short distance from the giant figure of Stan Musial we saw yesterday. This is the shadow of the statue of Dizzy Dean, the last pitcher in the history of the Major Leagues to win 30 games in a season. That was in 1934. This statistic is meaningless to those who don't know baseball, of course.

I thought this was an interesting image. He could just as well have been bowling.

I think this is the ideal object to have B&W image. I like it.

Great shot and great blog. It is truly a pleasure to follow daily. One quibble, Denny McLaine of the Detroit Tigers was the last to win thirty games in the majors in 1968. As a side note Dean's Cardinals beat the Tigers in the World Series in '34 and McClaine's Tigers upset the Cardinals in '68.
