now that's a wide stance

paging larry craig...

jesus alou is taking up the entire batter's box on his 1971 topps card.
and check out larry dierker lurking in the background.  dude looks like he is 8 feet tall, thanks to the bat boy heading down the steps into the dugout.  and also, what are the odds that this was 'helmet day' at shea stadium?  it looks like there are quite a few shiny blue helmets in the stands.  coincidence? i think not.

this card was one of many sent to me in a most generous package from dennis at pictures of men.  i will be showing many more in the next few days.  thanks dennis!
