Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes.
Photograph caption dated July 25, 1960 reads "'This way, we can't miss!' is the way Burbank Mayor Newell J. Cooper feels as he is about to pitch fireball to Los Angeles Dodger Norm Sherry. Norm's brother, Larry, crouches behind mayor to help Cooper interpret signal from catcher, Charles Ecclestone, Burbank Chamber of Commerce president. This quick game was played to help focus attention on 'Burbank Night with the Dodgers' Saturday. Buses will leave Olive Avenue Recreation Center, 1111 W. Olive Ave., at 6:30 p.m. Bus and reserved seat tickets are available for $3.50 at Chamber of Commerce office."
