Photograph was edited for publication purposes. Photograph article dated August 23, 1962 partially reads, "When the gray flannel executives on the New York Yankees virtually eliminate the last serious pennant contender remaining in the American League - something that happens every summer - they react with all the exhuberance [sic] of 25 wealthy stockholders watching AT&T declare another dividend. After they had systematically dismembered the persistent Los Angeles Angels, 4-3, last night at Chavez Ravine to go six full games ahead, their dressing room resembled any normal business office at the end of the day." Photograph caption reads, "Angels' George Thomas slides in safe - Yanks' Clete Boyer reaches for the ball during second-inning play." See image 00159177 for additional photo in this series.
