My paternal grandfather Floyd M. Hendricks born in 1892 in Pawnee, Illinois, is seated on the right with the line drawn to him. I see baseball gloves. They look to be a serious group of men.
Highlight of 1960 World Series
A different take today
on Becky B’s #januarylight squares Challenge
Ballparklights Pittsburgh PNC Park
I reread the rules of the #JanuaryLight challenge and the title is to end in the word light. Hence the title Ballparklights. I don’t think/
know it’s in any dictionary, connected, but I’m trying to adhere to the guidelines.
Photo Snapped from Phineas Street
I was headed to I-279 and pulled into Phineas Street on the North Side to capture beloved Pittsburgh Pirate, Roberto Clemente’s likeness on this building.
Artist Jeremy Raymer painted this stunning mural. Here’s an article written by Bob Bauder about the painting.
The building that served as the “canvas” for Baseball Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente’s portrait is Verdetto’s Bar and Restaurant.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries
Boundaries. Some people have none.
The creator of the challenge Ben Huberman says,”This week, let’s explore the creative potential of limits, borders, and dividers of all types.”
Here are a few visible from the archives

A Pittsburgh Wall We Know and Love (and a Couple of our Regular Retaining Walls)
A very special wall– Forbes Field.
Forbes Field is long gone (1972)
-but the wall where the1960 World Series was won by Bill Mazeroski’s homerun stands.
It’s called the Greatest Homerun Ever. You can watch it at YouTube here
And the retaining walls of Pittsburgh are featured prominently in Rick Sebak‘s excellent video 25 Things I Like About Pittsburgh available for viewing on Youtube for a short time.
You can’t believe how many retaining walls there are in every neighborhood of the city.
