Photograph caption dated August 2, 1962 reads, "Dodger pitcher Stan Williams who carries the reputation as being the squad's slowest worker, was caught in action, or at least on the mound in Wednesday night's game with Pittsburgh. In top left photo, Stan plays in dirt with his shoe; while he rubs his eye in second photo. In third photo Stan ponders 'Am I pitching too fast?' In lower photos, from left, Stan really isn't getting ready to pitch, see he has a weak stomach after giving up home-run pitch. In final photo Stan retreats for resin bag."
