Can you identify the date, as well as the inning, of the game depicted in the photo below? If so, you can win a handsome pictorial history of the Bronx Bombers (“New York Yankees Then and Now”), published by Thunder Bay Press.
Although at first glance it might seem impossible to discern when the action took place, there are enough clues in the photo to figure it out. So, get your magnifying glasses out and be sure to search every inch of the photo. Once you have determined the correct date and inning, post it in the comments section below (be sure to include a valid email when filling out the form) along with an explanation of how you solved the mystery. The first person to come up with the right answer, as well as a logical basis for determining it, will win the book. And, if you get stumped, feel free to leave behind whatever evidence you were able to uncover. Only one person will win the prize, but remember, baseball is a team sport.
Finally, if you don’t win this time, additional mystery photo contests will be held periodically (with another baseball-themed prize), so keep checking back for your chance to crack the case. Also, click here for a previous photo contest.
