Baseball Season Started This Week (Probably Paramus, NJ, 1978)
My mother says, "Let's get a picture of him holding the baby! I'll hand him the baby; what's he going to do, drop him?"
Dave and Hank Aaron, who hit the most home runs of anyone in history who wasn't juiced on steroids. (I think I have another of Aaron looking a little startled, before he got into pose mode, but I can't find it.)
(And while I'm thinking about my mother and sports figures: I'm told that she got into an elevator in midtown in the early 1950s, and standing there was Sweetwater Clifton. My mother immediately recognizes him as the NBA star that he was, "Wow! It's Bob Cousy".)
