Photograph article date stamped September 24, 1962 partially reads, "The autumn sun set softly yesterday on the jagged remains of the Los Angeles Angels' Little Miracle. And if Gene Autry's hired hands sought a reason why it never developed into anything more than an illusion they could blame it all on the fact that baseball stadium in Chavez Ravine was tailored to fit the feathery talents of their Dodger landlords." Photograph caption reads, "Fregosi slides safely into third in a losing cause - Rocky Bridges motions him in during sixth-inning action Sunday at Chavez Ravine."
