  1. “Now, don’t be nervous Ted.” In retrospect, that just seems hilarious. He ended up serving five years in the military, doing bombing missions over the enemy. I’m not sure Teddy Ballgame was ever nervous in his life.

  2. I can’t check to be sure, but it looks like the first picture is from before Ted’s first game, in which he was 1 for 4 with a double and two strikeouts, at the Yankees in a 2-0 loss:

    The second one-since Al Lopez was with the Boston Braves in 1939, it must be from an exhibition game just before the season started.
