Why We Love This

In this photograph, Phil Rizzuto “hits the dirt” to avoid Ralph Branca’s pitch in the third game of the World Series in 1947 at Ebbets Field. The “Bums” would have to wait almost another decade before they could finally beat the Yankees. This is a classic Brooklyn - NY rivalry image.
