"Braves Field Panorama" Boston Braves Print


Add to Cart:

It's October 6, 1948, Game 1 of the World Series, the Cleveland Indians vs. the Boston Braves at Braves Field in Beantown. We're in the top of the first inning, one out, and that's Larry Doby at bat for the Indians against Braves' right hander Johnny Sain. Bill Salkeld is the Boston catcher, Earl Torgeson is at first, Eddie Stanky is at second, Alvin Dark is the shortstop and Bob Elliott is playing third. Marvin "Twitch" Rickert is in left, Mike McCormick is in center and Tommy Holmes is in right. Sain went the distance, allowing only four hits, as the Braves beat the Indians and Bob Feller 1-0. Feller was superb, himself, allowing just one hit through the first seven innings. But in the eighth, Salkeld walked to open the inning. Pinch-runner Phil Masi moved to second on McCormick's sacrifice and remained there when Stanky was walked intentionally. After Masi was seemingly picked off at second but ruled safe by umpire Bill Stewart and Sain lined to right, Holmes singled past third to drive in Masi. The Indians went on to win the Series in six games.

Measuring 15" tall x 36" wide, this lithograph, officially titled Braves Field Panorama, is limited in edition to 600 prints. Each is numbered and signed by the artist, Andy Jurinko, from whose original painting the fine art print has been exactingly reproduced onto acid-free paper, which is noted for its long-term archival abilities.
