Photograph article dated March 3, 1964 reads, "The contract battle between star pitcher Sandy Koufax and the Los Angeles Dodgers is over but the scars may linger for some time - perhaps long enough to damage the Dodgers' chances for a second successive pennant. There is a distinct coolness between Koufax and Dodger General Manager Buzzy Bavasi, whom the brilliant southpaw accused Monday of deliberately casting him in the villain's role, forcing Sandy to accept a $70,000 contract for 1964." Photograph caption reads, "Manager Walt Alston, kneeling, surveys the four men who probably hold the key as to whether or not the Dodgers will repeat as World Champions. The foursome, left to right, is Sandy Koufax, Ron Perranoski, Jim Gilliam and Tommy Davis. The Dodgers are in Vero Beach getting ready to defend their pennant and world championship."
