Wezen-Ball

You Can't Help But Love It

by Larry Granillo

The best I can describe it, today is a day in which you express your feelings for the things that you love. As such, here is hands-down the best baseball photograph ever taken (well, my favorite at least). It's the kind of photo that can't help but re-spark that love of the game that everyone here at Baseball Prospectus has.

The photo was originally published in LIFE magazine and gives us a unique and amazing view of Game 7 of the 1960 World Series from high above Forbes Field. Enjoy, and feel free to share your favorite baseball-themed whatever, be it movie (Bad News Bears), book (Sandlot Peanuts), or anything else.

This hangs on my wall. Still available for $40 or so, here and there. Looks great with a grey rag mat and flat-black frame. ;-)

My favorite baseball-themed father-dad scene in a movie is from Frequency where Dennis Quaid and John Cavaziel catch up, talking about the World Series, the McGwire/Sosa home run chase etc.

On that note, I think 61* is an underrated baseball movie and one of my personal favorites.
