Photograph article dated August 23, 1963 partially reads, "Actually is [sic] isn't so much that the Los Angeles Dodgers management is asking of Rich Calmus, the lean and limber ex-schoolboy pitcher who only two years ago was worried about earning his varsity letter at Webster High in Tulsa, Okla. All they want him to do is start tonight's baseball game against the Milwaukee Braves at Chávez Ravine. There won't be more than 45,000 people present, so don't be nervous. And, oh yes, while he's about it, would he mind beating Warren Spahn?" Photograph caption reads, "Stan Musial, greatest player ever to appear in National League, takes final cut. Hits into double play in last appearance in Los Angeles Thursday at Chávez Ravine."
