Whitey Ford Batting in the 1961 World Series

This is a little photo I got from the newspaper archives, of Whitey hitting the dirt after getting hit by a ball he’d foul-tipped off his bat. He was in the midst of extending his scoreless innings pitched in the Series streak, with the Yankees winning game 4, 7-0, before just 32,589 at Crosley Field.

  1. Nice find! I believe Crosley Field’s capacity was just a little over 30,000 in ’61, so the crowd that day would have been standing room only.
