Photograph caption dated June 17, 1963 partially reads, "The therapeutic value of a holiday in the Hawaiian Islands may not be readily apparent to every left-handed pitcher who passes through Los Angeles, but Jon Nicholas Whillhite (don't forget that name) eagerly suggests that it is the only place to get well." Photograph caption reads, "Here's Nick Willhite, newest Dodger rookie sensation - Young lefty may move into LA club's regular rotation."
